Pour Bakhsh S M. Analysis of logical criteria for codification of patients’ rights charter. Medical Law Journal. 2009; 3 (9) :35-62
URL: http://ijmedicallaw.ir/article-1-111-en.html

In recent years many considerations have been considered in order to protect the rights of patients. Studying patients' rights can be seen as an observance of the basic values of human rights, such as respect for individuals on which the rights of patients are based. Rights of patients reflect medical rights and human rights, and the basis for improving patients' health.In Iran's Islamic penal code the doctors' and patients' rights have been recognized, but the necessity of developing laws that involve rights of patients and doctors is obvious. In 1381, the Charter of patients' rights published by Health Department of Ministry of Health and Medical Education to provide health centers was notified. Although this action plan is an effective step for patients and includes legal attention to the subject mentioned above, it is not enough and doesn’t comprise all the rights of patients. Therefore this article not only mentions a definition of the rights of patients and their legal charter, but it has also proposed partnership with the jurisprudents, experienced lawyers, doctors and experts to prepare a comprehensive charter of rights of patients so that it could be presented to the Parliament for final approval.
