Víctor Grífols i Lucas Foundation rated highly for transparency

The Foundation ranks fourth in an evaluation of the leading Spanish foundations.

The report "Construir Confianza 2017" (building trust), compiled by Fundación Compromiso y Transparencia, puts the Víctor Grífols i Lucas Foundation in fourth place in its ranking of the most transparent organizations in the family foundation category. This report evaluates the transparency and governance of Spanish foundations, based on the information published on their websites.

The foundation's position has improved over the last year. However, it is not included in the top rankings because it does not publish an auditor's report, which this study deems essential, although none of the circumstances specified by the legislation in this area would require the foundation to produce audited accounts.

 Session led by Núria Terribas, legal expert and Director of the Víctor Grífols i Lucas Foundation.

In an old people's home, a man reads a woman a romantic story from his diary. It is the story of Noah Calhoun and Allie Nelson, two teenagers who fell in love and experienced one unforgettable summer before they were separated, first by their parents and then by war. The film will be followed by a debate about autonomy, old age and caring.

This activity is part of the ‘Bioethics: autonomy and dependency' cycle running throughout April at Centro Cívico Urgell.

The Grifols Foundation Chair of Bioethics and the Catalan Institute for Oncology (ICO) are organizing the fifth edition of their course on an introduction to bioethics for care professionals.


The aim of the course is to provide participants with tools to identify and analyze ethical dilemmas in their professional practice, and to discuss clinical decision-making from a bioethical perspective. The course will begin with an introduction to the origin and basic concepts of bioethics, before moving on to address issues such as how ethics committees operate, the rights of the patient, the clinical relationship, quality of life in complex decisions, and the allocation of health resources.


The course will be taught by Màrius Morlans (Nephrologist. Member of the Bioethics Committee of Catalona), Francisco Montero (Philosopher and nurse. Member of the Health Care Ethics Committee of the Vall d'Hebrón Hospital) and Sergio Ramos (Philosopher. Bioetics professor of the University of Vic).


Online course 15 hours.
