Abstract

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence develops guidance for the allocation of resources for services in clinical and public health and social care. It has a policy of social values underpinning this work that was last updated in 2008. This report is of a review of the literature on social values to help inform the further updating of this policy. The review involved a semi iterative search for literature that was then screened for ideas relevant to health and care guidance. These ideas and the main issues they raise are reported under eight major social value categories. Twenty one themes arising from the review are also provided. The literature raises many issues about the nature of social values that can be applied to guidance development. It needs to be emphasized that not all of these issues should necessarily be applied to guidance development. They are simply issues that have been raised in the literature and this review provides an opportunity for them to be considered. Many of the ideas that have been proposed are in tension with each other and could not all be achieved. It should also be emphasized that many of the issues raise considerable practical challenges in terms of methods, data and financial and timeliness. The review does not assume that any of these issues or ideas could or should necessarily be part of NICE’s policy on social values in guidance production. The review simply provides a list of ideas, issues and themes from the literature for consideration.
