Navigating today’s healthcare system is complex. Often, patients and their support systems are overwhelmed by the myriad of things to know and are unsure of how to navigate the system. Patients have many rights and responsibilities as they navigate medical care, yet many do not know the specifics of what they are. Whether attending a routine medical appointment, navigating a chronic condition/illness, facing a hospital stay or long-term medical treatment, it is critical for a patient to be an active and knowledgeable participant in their own care. During this lecture, we will discuss the right to access care, patient dignity, confidentiality, and consent to treatment. The best way to make sure your rights as a patient are honored and respected is to know more about them. You will leave this lecture feeling confident and well informed as you approach current or future health decisions.
