This paper presents a tentative value-based steering model that aims to fill this gap in research and in practice.ResultsWe constructed a value-based steering model which consists of three parts: (1) the principles of steering; (2) the steering process; and (3) Value Steering Canvas, a concrete tool for steering. ConclusionsThe commissioning body can start using value-based steering without changes in legislation or the present service system.
