A health bill of rights for women

We "do" have rights as health consumers when we deal with the health system.

1. respect

2. be fully informed

3. make decisions for herself

4. control her own body

5. non-judgemental responses or treatment

6. accurate and up to date information

7. full explanation of any examination, procedures, condition or treatment

8. full and unbiased details of the alternatives and referral options

9. appropriate answers to all questions

10. time to aske questions

11. time to consider the information supplied

12. know of any risks or side effects of any treatment

13. details about costs of treatment

14. a second opinion

15. stop any examination or treatment the moment you request it

16. advice upon request

17. discuss the information fully.
