Capacity and consent: new tool to support your decision making

GMC, online 6 June 2016
“Does my patient have capacity to make this decision about their care? Is there a valid and applicable advance refusal of treatment? What should I do if my patient lacks capacity to consent to treatment and no one has been appointed to make decisions for them? If you are in doubt about your patient’s capacity to make a decision about their treatment, a new interactive online tool will help you identify the steps you need to take.”
