by David Seedhouse

We have lost sight of the vital symmetry between values andevidence. Values lie behind absolutely everything we do, yetwe allow technical decision-making to dominate every social sphere,as if only ‘the evidence’ really matters.

In this extraordinarily original and compelling book, DavidSeedhouse advocates values-based decision-making as a much-neededmeans of restoring humane balance to social planning, and explainsthe innovative use of information technology to turn values intoevidence.

The potential of values-based decision-making is huge andexciting. The final chapter of this seminal work points theway to a democratic future in which everyone’s values can beseen and heard, regardless of technical knowledge or socialstatus.

Values-Based Decision-Making mostly uses examplesdrawn from the health field.  Like David Seedhouse’smany other books, it will be of considerable interest to all healthprofessionals.  But values-based decision-making reaches intoevery arena of human problem-solving, and should therefore be readby everyone who makes plans on behalf of other people.
