DOI : 10.30621/jbachs.2019.530 Family Planning (FP) services are services offered for individuals to have children on whenever and in the number they wish. For the success and sustainability of Family Planning services, it is necessary to provide a service respecting patient rights by health professionals. One of the most important reasons for violations of patient rights is lack of knowledge of healthcare professionals regarding this issue. However, patient rights are not discussed enough in trainings of FP.

The aim of this study is to propose a training program for the purpose of increasing awareness and to gain skills about patient rights for healthcare professionals rendering service in the field of FP. The training program is proposed as three days. During the program, an interactive training environment would be provided, and methods such as interactive presentations, small group works, and role play would be used. It is expected at the end of the training that participants gain enough skills in the subject of recognizing patient rights and rendering services which are respectful for patient rights. Six months after training, participants will be contacted to evaluate the use of objectives in professional life and how they are transferred to work. As we suggested, regular trainings for continuous professional development of healthcare professionals, who work in the FP field would increase quality of health care.
