New Biomedical Technologies Implementation Process Management Considering Ethical Issues
2019
The aim is to develop an approach to new medical technologies development process management considering ethical limitations.

The following tasks have been formulated:

1. Characterize bioethics role in new medical technologies development process management at global level.

2. Characterize existing tools and committees for ethical regulations in Russian Federation compared to world practice.

3. Identify research areas prone to ethical problems.

4. Identify major stakeholders of new medical technologies development process management and their attitude to ethical limitations.

5. Develop recommendations for major stakeholders.

6. Develop a technological map for research management considering ethical limitations.

Methods: literature review, medical technologies development cases studies, especially those encountering ethical limitations, interviewing major stakeholders of new medical technologies development process management.

Results: reviewed bioethics history from emergence in mid XX century to institutionalization in Russia and worldwide, studied philosophical approaches to identify research areas associated with increased ethical limitations, studied cases concerning new medical technologies development in tough ethical environment, identified major stakeholder groups, developed recommendations for each group, developed a technological map for research management considering ethical limitations.

Conclusion: ethics should be regarded as a management tool rather than a barrier in the way of new technologies. A promising model for new medical technologies management considering ethical limitations could be a combination of philosophical concepts of B.G. Yudin with strict social and governmental regulation on the model of British Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA), regulating all research concerning human embryos.
