Course offered in cooperation with ICO. The Foundation offers 50 percent scholarships.

The Víctor Grífols i Lucas Foundation and the Catalan Institute of Oncology (ICO) are working together again to organize a second edition of the online training course, "Introduction to bioethics in multidisciplinary clinical practice" intended for healthcare professionals. As in the previous edition, the training course lasts 15 hours and is delivered over the e-oncology virtual platform.

The course, which starts on February 16, 2015, presents students with situations similar to those that can appear in healthcare practice, by using different case studies. Among other topics it addresses the rights of patients, the clinical relationship, the decision-making process and the rational use of resources.
