Сriminal Law Protection of the Autonomy of Patients in Ukraine. Part 1

Sofiya Likhova, Marek Mozgawa

Abstract


The article aims to analyze the phenomenon of “patient’s autonomy” as an object of criminal law protection. Patients’ autonomy is one of the most important rights. Respect for it is one of the factors ensuring the correct treatment process. The article is divided into two parts. In this part, the authors analyze the legal acts of Ukraine, which regulate the process of providing medical services and guarantee patients’ right to autonomy. The authors discuss, i.a., the issue of the patient’s consent to medical interventions or the right to information about his or her state of health. They also point to statistics on offences committed by medical staff members in connection with their professional activities. Furthermore, they point out that the problem of violation of patient’s autonomy should be looked at not only from the legal but also from the social point of view. This applies to the patient–medical relationship, in which the doctor plays a leading role. Moreover, the content of these relations lies not only on the professional but also on the bioethical level.
