Human rights and patient complaints in the region of Västra Götaland

The aim of the project is  to investigate if humans rights are violated in patient filed complaints to the patient advisory Committee in the region of Västra Götaland.
The point of departure are the UNs’ principles of humans rights, participation, inclusion, non-discrimination, equality, responsibility and transparency. The project includes several sub-studies in which filed complaints to the patient advisory committee will be analyzed to answer questions regarding if there are flaws in reception and communication which contradict humans rights. Can certain groups of people be identified as particularly vulnerable? The projects intends to contribute to increased knowledge applicable in clinical practice on how human rights issues can be addressed.
