Course at COMB: Iatrogenesis and ethics

2 and 9 March

College of Doctors of Barcelona.  Free of charge.
Scientific progress has spectacularly increased the range of medical interventions, and has delivered great health benefits. Unfortunately, however, there has also been an increase in adverse effects, which are not always related to errors or negligence on the part of health professionals, and are instead often the consequence of more remote or latent causes, among which we can point to a trivialization of medicine and health which, paradoxically, goes hand in hand with unreasonable expectations of medicine and of the health system.
8-hour course for doctors and health professionals interested in preventing adverse effects in their practice.
Recognized by Consell Català de Formació Continuada de les Professions Sanitàries and Comisión de Formación Continuada del Sistema Nacional de Salud.
From 16:00 to 20:00.

From March 16 to April 30, 2020

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