    Institutional Challenges for Clinical Ethics Committees.Andrea Dörries, Pierre Boitte, Ana Borovecki, Jean-Philippe Cobbaut, Stella Reiter-Theil & Anne-Marie Slowther - 2011 - HEC Forum 23 (3):193-205.

In the second part, the country reports are analysed. It is suggested that regulation of HECs should be central and weak. Central regulation is argued to be apt to improve (...)

A qualitative study was performed using professionally homogenous focus groups of ICU nurses and physicians of diverse professional and clinical backgrounds at three research sites.

    Developments Regarding Ethical Issues in Medicine in the Republic of Croatia.Ana Borovecki, Henk ten Have & Stjepan Oreškovic - 2004 - Cambridge Quarterly of Healthcare Ethics 13 (3):263-266.
    In Croatia, the subject of medical ethics, or bioethics, was introduced into the curriculum in the early 1990s at the medical schools of the University of Rijeka and the University of Zagreb. Today, bioethics education has become a basic part of undergraduate medical education not only in Rijeka and Zagreb but also in Osijek.

    Reprogenetics, Reproductive Risks and Cultural Awareness: What May We Learn From Israeli and Croatian Medical Students?Miriam Ethel Bentwich, Michal Mashiach-Eizenberg, Ana Borovečki & Frida Simonstein - 2019 - BMC Medical Ethics 20 (1):1-11.
    Background Past studies emphasized the possible cultural influence on attitudes regarding reprogenetics and reproductive risks among medical students who are taken to be “future physicians.” These studies were crafted in order to enhance the knowledge and expand the boundaries of cultural competence. Yet such studies were focused on MS from relatively marginalized cultures, namely either from non-Western developing countries or minority groups in developed countries. The current study sheds light on possible cultural influences of the dominant culture on medical students (...)
