Evidence, Uncertainty and the Policy Pursuit of Fairness
The article considers the interrelationships between ideas of fairness and ideas of evidence, and how progress in the policy pursuit of fairness in health and healthcare has been plagued by problems with vocabulary, vagueness as to values, deplorable absences of relevant empirical knowledge and failure to address appropriate means of making decisions about fairness in health and healthcare. Specific proposals are suggested as possible ways forward.
