F. Ethical analysis

Justice and Equity

How are technologies presenting with relevantly similar (ethical) problems treated in health care system?


Clearly presenting how relevantly similar technologies are treated in a health care system may help to adopt coherent and just health policies, either by applying past precedents to current cases, or showing that past cases need reconsideration. Similarity is to be defined individually for each technology. The idea is to concentrate only on the similarities relevant for solving the ethical problems found important for the current HTA project. The similarity may be, for example, of medical, technological, economical, ethical, social, organisational or legal nature.
