ABSTRACT
In 2004 the World Health Organization founded The world alliance for patients safety which includes the section Patients for patients safety. The intention of both is to include experiences and suggestions of patients into health research, planning and management. Some other declarations and papers of WHO and Council of Europe are intended to the safety of patients as well. Because of the increasing longevity the number of older patients with chronic noncommunicable diseases is increasing as well and the safe treatment combined with the possibility of expressing their free will is important for them. Patients can realise their free will only within a democratic surrounding with well developed health system in which according to WHO the voice and choice of patients represent a central point of its organisation, development and democratic collaboration between patients and health system. In Slovenia there is still a lot to do in this regard after the adoption of the law about patients rights.
