Aim: Implementing the Charter of Patients' Rights and adhering to a professional commitment improve the quality of health care. Therefore, the present study was conducted with the aim of showing the correlation between professional commitment and the level of awareness and observance of the Charter of Patients' Rights in Nursing and Midwifery staff.
Methods: This descriptive-correlational study was performed on 281 nurses and midwives working in Kamali, Bahonar, Alborz (Karaj) and Fayyazbakhsh (Tehran) hospitals. The subjects were collected by stratified random sampling. P Data collection tool was two separate questionnaires. The first part was demographic information, the second part was a two-part questionnaire on the level of awareness and observance of patients' charter, and the third part was a professional commitment questionnaire. Data were analyzed using SPSS software 16, independent t-test, Pearson correlation, Chi-square, and simple regression analysis.
Results: Nurses' knowledge and observance of patient rights (49/4±9, 56/2±10/6) were moderate and high in the midwifery group (102/8±9, 76/5±7/3). Also, the professional commitment of the nurses (97±11) was shown at the desired level and for the midwives (83/3±7/7) at a very good level. There was a significant relationship between professional commitment and knowledge and observance of the Charter of Patients' Rights among nurses and midwives.
Conclusion: Since awareness and commitment are the basis of practice, it is recommended to increase the knowledge of nurses and midwives in areas where they do not have a good level of awareness. In addition, it is essential hospital managers take the necessary steps to implement patients' rights by holding workshops.
