Promotion and Enforcement of Patients' Rights
Medicine and Law: World Association for Medical Law 2004; 23(2): 289-297
European health systems have experienced a "right-revolution" in the last 10 years'. The existence of a large number of policy trends and normative initiatives in European countries demonstrates a strong interest in patients' rights. The increasing interest and involvement of the general public is also decisive and can favour further development and involvement by policy-makers and the legislators. Numerous measures exist to promote and enforce patients' rights. It is now time for the anti-cancer associations to play an active role in this important event and to try to define a new mission for the benefit of the patients.
