It is expected that The Assisted Decision Making (Capacity) Act 2015 will be fully commenced within the year. When commenced it will result in significant obligations on healthcare professionals. A patient's ability to make decisions for themselves will be enshrined in law.
Chaired by The Honourable Miss Justice Mary Laffoy, this half day conference will assess the practical implementation of the Act to include Codes of Practice. It is intended to give attendees an insight into How Capacity is Defined and Assessed. Structures and provisions for Enduring Powers of Attorney, Advance Healthcare Directives and Deprivation of Liberty will be covered by experts in these areas.
Who should attend?
Healthcare professionals, solicitors, barristers, financial services professionals and those who interact with adults whose decision-making capacity is in question or who lack the capacity to make a decision.
