Patients' rights development in Europe, December 1998 / by Dimo Iliev and Mikko Vienonen
AbstractThe promotion of patients' rights, being a dynamic process, is difficult to monitor. Medical progress and the concomitant challenges to the rights of patients, combined with changes in society and countries' legal frameworks, necessitate an assessment of the experience gained in promoting these rights. Existing instruments dealing with patients' rights then need revision and updating to ensure that they are constantly protected and respected, and to prevent their violation. A further challenge will be to monitor and assess the real implementation of patients' rights in day-to-day practices at country level. The theory which is spelled out in charters and legal texts may provide an idealized picture of reality at institutional level and in patients' histories. In future reviews, this aspect would need to be further elaborated
