Introduction to bioethics in multidisciplinary clinical practice

From March 16 to April 30, 2020

The Grifols Foundation Chair of Bioethics and the Catalan Institute for Oncology (ICO) are organizing the seventh 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).
