The Tavistock Principles guide behavior in health care for both individuals and institutions.
The following list below are its principles.
Right: People have a right to health and health care.
Balance: Care of individual patients is central, but the health of the population is also our concern.
Comprehensiveness: In addition to treating illness, we have an obligation to ease suffering, minimize disability, prevent disease, and promote health.
Cooperation: Health care succeeds only if we cooperate with those we serve, each other, and those in other sectors.
Improvement: Improving health care is a serious and continuing responsibility.
Safety: Do no harm.
Openness: Being open, honest, and trustworthy is vital in health care.
