PMID:  2493545     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Human rights are discussed in the context of the technological advances in modern medicine and the complex sociological settings in which major issues, such as accessibility, availability, costs and quality and health care, scarce resources, and shifting values, have led to reconsideration of the present systems. Rights in the field of medicine and law are discussed in general, and patients' rights in particular.
