Essentials of Values-based Practice
Essentials of values based practice
As the launch volume in the CUP series this book sets values-based practice in context with other tools in the values toolkit (chapters 1 and 2), gives an overview of its main elements (chapter 3), explores each of these elements first separately (chapters 4 – 12) and then as they come together in practice (chapters 13 and 14). Appendices include a Glossary of Key Terms and Teaching and Learning Framework (see below). The Index is supported by a searchable web based VBP Index allowing particular topic areas in values-based practice to be traced across the book as a whole.

Each chapter of ‘Essential VBP’ is built around an extended clinical story from a particular area of either primary or secondary care. The stories chosen aim to show how values-based practice complements and supports evidence-based management of everyday clinical problems such as low back pain, hypertension, teenage acne, breast cancer and diabetes control.

Curriculum Tools

A Teaching and Learning Framework developed by Ed Peile and published originally in Essential Values-based Practice gives the knowledge, skills and attitudes/behaviors required for each element of values-based practice together with suggestions for appropriate methods of assessment.

The Royal College of General Practitioners curriculum for GP (Family Doctor) training includes elements of values-based practice within its key contextual statements covering such areas as person-centered care, enhancing professional knowledge, and the GP consultation in practice. These are derived from an earlier and more extensive curriculum developed by Anne-Marie Slowther
