Mentally Incapacitated Adults and Decision-making: An Overview (Consultation Paper)

 
9780117302013: Mentally Incapacitated Adults and Decision-making: An Overview (Consultation Paper)

The existing law relating to decision-making on behalf of mentally incapacitated adults is fragmented, complex and in many repects out of date. Recent debate has focused on the difficulties involved in obtaining consent to serious medical procedures, but the problems extend far beyond this issue, and are becoming increasingly visible as more and more people who may be mentally incapacitated are living in the community. This report sets out to give an overview of the civil law relating to mental incapacity, the present procedures available for making decisions on behalf of mentally incapacitated people, the shortcomings of these procedures and some of the options for reform.
