Drilling Deep into the Assisted Decision-Making (Capacity) Act 2015

Considerations for Health and Social Care Practice

29th November 2019

Brookfield Health Sciences Building, University College Cork

The Conference will critically explore aspects of the 2015 Act and what it means for health and social care practice. The aim is to combine a panel of experts from a range of clinical specialities with legal, ethical, policy, NGO and service user expertise in relation to the detail and implications of the Assisted Decision Making (Capacity) Act 2015 for health and social care practice. It also aims to highlight the importance of ensuring that this critical piece of human rights legislation remains a priority for full commencement at Government level and that front line health and social care practice continues to immediately evolve to address many of the fundamental human rights principles underpinned by the Act.

This conference is hosted by the HSE Assisted Decision-Making and Consent Office with the UCC School of Law and the Decision Support Service.
