[Research Presentation] Discussing patients' rights without considering vital prerequisites for practicing it is a useless approach if these rights are to be observed. The aim of this study is to explain Iranian nurses and physicians lived experiences with patients' rights practice. To achieve these, semi-structured interviews were conducted with 8 nurses and 5 physicians working in a central teaching hospital in Tehran, Iran. The main themes emerging from the analysis of participants' narratives were: staff shortages, disregard ofá nurses' and physicians' rights, time constraints, limited facilities, specific work environment limitations, low-competent staff, public unawareness and society's poor attitude towards nursing as the barriers of patients' rights practice. The participants explained how some limitations can cause unwilling patients' rights violation in their daily professional work. They also mentioned the strategies which can be utilized to promote and protect patientsÆ rights. The findings of this research can be of use to managers and decision makers as they hear and understand the voices of those who are mainly expected to observe and protect these rights in practice.
