The Institut Guttmann maintains legal, honest, ethical and responsible behaviour, and is also keen to promote this behaviour among other people, institutions and entities with whom it interacts in order to carry out its objectives.
With this objective in mind, the Institut Guttmann regulates its actions and that of its staff and partners, as well as the relationship it maintains with third parties, through:
The Institut Guttmann Code of Ethics, which includes all norms with regard to the actions, ethical principles and rules of conduct that should guide the actions of everybody who, in one way or another, performs their functions within the organisation. These norms thereby promote the actions that make it possible to carry out the different founding objectives (members of the Board of Trustees, management team, staff, external partners...). [Art. 10.1 a) ORDRE JUS/152/2018]
Any non-compliance with or violation of this code must be reported so it can be corrected immediately.
In the event that entities we work with, patients and their families, professionals or other institutions that we have a relationship with have knowledge of any irregular practice related to the non-compliance with or violation of the behaviours included in the Code of Ethics or in the organisation’s Code of Conduct, they should inform the Institut Guttmann using the communication channels established for this purpose:
By email to the address:
By post to the address:
Fundació Institut Guttmann.
Management - Code of Ethics
Camí de Can Ruti, s/n
These channels will also be used to deal with any questions related to the interpretation of the principles mentioned within the documents on the Code of Ethics, Transparency and Good Governance portal.
