[Autom. eng. transl.] The model of ontologically based personalism is included by EUnetHTA in the list of local approaches for ethical assessments in HTA processes (EUnetHTA, 2007). It addresses the moral dilemmas concerning the introduction and use of technologies in the health field from a perspective, which recognizes the being and the dignity of the person as absolute values, placing, as a consequence, as a primum principium the unconditional respect for their inviolability and the protection of their free expression, primarily on the side of human rights. In it, the various analyzes are conducted according to a (triangular) scheme with three points of connection (exposition of the biomedical fact, deepening of the anthropological-values meaning and ethical-normative elaboration) and the comparison with the personalist ethics, some principles of morality traditional and the reflections deriving from the philosophy of medicine. The communication intends to make explicit the contents of this model, in its application to HTA processes.
