ACHEEV 2023 Symposium: Researching Values in Health Contexts

The 2023 ACHEEV Symposium focuses on values in public health and health care. ‘Values’ are a common object of academic attention in health research, but are conceptualised and theorised differently in the disciplines contributing to health research. Some disciplines offer deep ontological and epistemological structures for thinking about values (consider for example value theory in moral philosophy, or fact-value debates in the philosophy of science). In contrast, some research practices treat participant values as self-evident in data, without relying on such scaffolding. And some methodologies—such as deliberative democratic approaches—invite participants to make cooperative judgements about value trade-offs.
