An framework stressing that evidence pertinent to therapy and care is always and necessarily rooted in values and stressing that these are not purely economic values.
Values based evidence is derived from a principle of mutual respect between client, therapist and service. It recognises that there may be diversity in value systems and in terms of beliefs and preferences and these should be taken into account in decision making. It recognises the complexity of the competing demands of effectiveness; quality of life; cost; autonomy and governance as well as philosophical preferences. Linked to Values Based Practice (VBP).

Not explicitly referenced anywhere but the principles of VBE and VBP run through the book implicitly as much as those of PBE, Practice Based Evidence run through it explicitly.
