    Triage During the COVID-19 Epidemic in Spain: Better and Worse Ethical Arguments.Benjamin Herreros, Pablo Gella & Diego Real de Asua - 2020 - Journal of Medical Ethics 46 (7):455-458.
    The COVID-19 pandemic has generated an imbalance between the clinical needs of the population and the effective availability of advanced life support resources. Triage protocols have thus become necessary. Triage decisions in situations of scarce resources were not extraordinary in the pre-COVID-19 era; these protocols abounded in the context of organ transplantation. However, this prior experience was not considered during the COVID-19 outbreak in Spain. Lacking national guidance or public coordination, each hospital has been forced to put forth independent and (...)

    The Use of Advance Directives in Specialized Care Units: A Focus Group Study With Healthcare Professionals in Madrid.Benjamín Herreros, María José Monforte, Julia Molina, María Velasco, Karmele Olaciregui Dague & Emanuele Valenti - 2020 - Journal of Bioethical Inquiry 17 (3):395-405.
    Eight focus groups were conducted in four public hospitals in Madrid to explore healthcare professionals’ perceptions of advance directives in order to improve the understanding of their lack of success among physicians and patients. A purposive sample of sixty healthcare professionals discussed ADs and reasons for their infrequent use. Three main themes were identified: perceptions about their meaning, appraisals of their use in clinical practice, and decision-making about them. Healthcare professionals perceived a lack of clarity about their definition and implementation. (...)

    Do Spanish Hospital Professionals Educate Their Patients About Advance Directives?: A Descriptive Study in a University Hospital in Madrid, Spain.María Pérez, Benjamín Herreros, Mª Dolores Martín, Julia Molina, Jack Kanouzi & María Velasco - 2016 - Journal of Bioethical Inquiry 13 (2):295-303.
    It is unknown whether hospital-based medical professionals in Spain educate patients about advance directives. The objective of this research was to determine the frequency of hospital-based physicians’ and nurses’ engagement in AD discussions in the hospital and which patient populations merit such efforts. A short question-and-answer-based survey of physicians and nurses taking care of inpatients was conducted at a university hospital in Madrid, Spain. In total, 283 surveys were collected from medical professionals, of whom 71 per cent were female, with (...)

    Animating Clinical Ethics: A Structured Method to Teach Ethical Analysis Through Movies.Diego Real de Asúa, Karmele Olaciregui Dague, Andrés Arriaga & Benjamin Herreros - forthcoming - HEC Forum:1-11.
    Movies can serve valuable didactic purposes teaching clinical ethics to medical students. However, using film sequences as means to develop critical thinking is not a straightforward task. There is a significant gap in the literature regarding how to analyse the ethical content embedded in these clips systematically, in a way that facilitates the students’ transition from anecdotal reflections to abstract thinking. This article offers a pedagogical proposal to approach the ethical analysis of film sequences in a systematic fashion. This structured (...)

    Why Have Advance Directives Failed in Spain?Benjamín Herreros, María Benito, Pablo Gella, Emanuele Valenti, Beatriz Sánchez & Tayra Velasco - 2020 - BMC Medical Ethics 21 (1):1-13.
    Background In Spain, there has been great effort by lawmakers to put Advance Directives into practice since 2002. At the same time, the field of bioethics has been on the rise, a discipline that has spurred debate on the right of patients to exercise their autonomy. Despite all this, the implementation of ADs can be said to have failed in Spain, because its prevalence is very low, there is a great lack of knowledge about them and they have very little (...)

    Operation of a triage committee for advanced life support during the COVID-19 pandemic.Benjamín Herreros, Rafael Ruiz de Luna, Natalia de la Calle, Diego Gayoso, Paula Martínez, Karmele Olaciregui Dague & Gregorio Palacios - 2022 - Philosophy, Ethics, and Humanities in Medicine 17 (1):1-8.
    BackgroundDuring the first weeks of March 2020 in Spain, the cases of severe respiratory failure progressively increased, generating an imbalance between the clinical needs for advanced life support measures and the effective availability of ALS resources. To address this problem, the creation of triage committees was proposed, whose main function is to select the best candidates to receive ALS. The main objective of our study is to describe the clinical characteristics of the patients evaluated by the TC of the Alcorcón (...)
