ABOUT THE INSTITUTO

Clinical ethics (ethical problems faced by health professionals) is a more and more relevant field since most of the problems faced by health professionals are related to ethical conflicts originated by the clinical practice.

The growing development of clinical ethics has led to the creation of college institutions in United States and Europe, and it has led to the creation of the Instituto de Ética Clínica Francisco Vallés – Universidad Europea.

The Instituto philosophy is to approach clinical ethics problems with accuracy and teamwork. The Instituto’s intentions are to delve the knowledge and decision-making process in the field of clinical ethics from three areas: participation, tolerance towards different ideas and work responsibility.

The Instituto de Ética Clínica Francisco Vallés is member of European Cooperation in Sciencia and Technology, Cambridge Consortium for Bioethics Education and Unit of the UNESCO Chair in Bioethics.

The goals of the Instituto de Ética Clínica Francisco Vallés – Universidad Europea are:

  • Research in the main areas of clinical ethics.
  • Educate health professionals on the field of clinical ethics.
  • Advise our institution partners on ethical conflicts.
