  1. Ethics: The Heart of Health Care.David Seedhouse - 1988 - Wiley.
    Ethics: The Heart of Health Care - a classic ethics text in medical, health and nursing studies - is recommended around the globe for its straightforward introduction to ethical analysis. In this new edition David Seedhouse demonstrates tangibly and graphically how ethics and health care are inextricably bound together, and creates a firm theoretical basis for practical decision-making. He not only clarifies ethics but, with the aid of the acclaimed Ethical Grid, teaches an essential practical skill which can be productively (...)

    Practical Dignity in Caring.Leila Shotton & David Seedhouse - 1998 - Nursing Ethics 5 (3):246-255.
    It is difficult to understand the meaning of ‘dignity’ in human rights, bioethics and nursing literature because the word is used so vaguely. Unless dignity’s meaning is spelt out it can disappear beneath more tangible priorities. In this article we define dignity and show how this can help health workers to maintain the dignity of people in their care.

    The Way Around Health Economics' Dead End.David Seedhouse - 1995 - Health Care Analysis 3 (3):205-220.
    Many leading health economists hold misconceived ideas about central components of their work. In particular, they assume that their methods are in principle valueneutral. This belief is demonstrably false. Health economic investigations incorporate mainly unexpressed theories of health. Unless this fact is recognised health economics will shortly reach a conceptual and practical dead end. The way to avoid this dead end is to express implicit theories of health, and explicitly to base philosophically and economically justifiable policy proposals on them.

    The Importance of Care.Tejo van Schie & David Seedhouse - 1997 - Health Care Analysis 5 (4):283-291.
    This paper is in three parts. In Part One we briefly explain that an unsophisticated form of utilitarianism—economic rationalism (ER)—has become dominant in many health systems. Its proponents argue that one of ER’s most important effects is to increase consumer choice. However, evidence from New Zealand does not support this claim. Furthermore, the logic of ER requires the construction of systems which tend to restrict individual participation.In Part Two we argue that although some have advocated an ‘ethic of care’ in (...)

  19. Clarifying the Task.David Seedhouse - 1993 - Theoretical Medicine and Bioethics 14 (4).
    Those who would enquire into therelationship between health conceptions and health care consequences are faced with a formidable task. In order to make this challenge manageable it is necessary to define the scope of the task as precisely as possible. Are we, for instance, faced with a purely theoretical challenge; a task for applied philosophy, or must we employ multi-disciplinary methods?This paper argues that while philosophy has a central clarifying role, inquiry into the relationship between health conceptions and health care (...)

    Mapping Mental Health: Speculation Beyond the Microscope.David Seedhouse - 1998 - Health Care Analysis 6 (2):93-98.
    ConclusionA map of mental health is admittedly the vaguest of speculations at the moment. It is nowhere near as precise as anything presently seen through the mental health microscope. Indeed it may well turn out to offer nothing at all. On the other hand, the truth remains that unless we beat our addiction to microscopes we will never get even a glimpse of mental health: you can’t read a map with a microscope.

    Health Care Discourse: A Dialogue Concerning the Philosophy of Health Care.David Seedhouse & John Shand - 1998 - Health Care Analysis 6 (3):237-260.
    Any attempt to describe a "best health service' must make political assumptions. For example, should it help everyone? Do different people have different entitlements to its support? Should its help be offered according to need, value for money or ability to benefit? These assumptions are not always clear to health service decision-makers immersed in clinical and economic technicalities, so HCA invited two philosophers --John Shand and David Seedhouse -- to engage in conversation about the political philosophy of health care.
