A Bill of Rights is one of the means the caring professional societies can rely upon to better understand the health issues facing the patients they are caring for. Even AIUC is on the way to propose such a bill for the sore-affected patients. It is composed of ten points dealing with some of the most sensitive caring issues: a correct diagnosis, the management of access to medical centres, the writing-up of a well-formed healing plan, the filling-in of an assessment file, the availability of sore treatments for free, the respect of the everybody faith, the search for the psychological wellbeing of the patients, the control of the pain. Ten points that should be the basis for the healing of a symptom which may change forever the patients’ life a lot more than the pathology causing it.
