(Critical) This program covers a number of issues involved in patient's rights, including right to information, informed consent, refusal of care, incapacitated patient minors, emergencies, treatment by students, experimentation, privacy, ownership of records and protection from outrageous conduct. Vignettes are used to depict many of these situations. Although these issues are somewhat unconnected and suffer somewhat in clarity and detail, the patient's right to conrol someaspects of his care emerges clearly as a unifying theme. The nurse's role in a conflict between patient and physician is not made clear. Although the vignettes are effective, they are somewhat overdone and sometimes make it difficult to readjust to the more technical, less dramatic discussions which follow. Nevertheless, the program is recommended
