The ability to make decisions and take actions that influence our life is critically important, and ranges from simple everyday choices about what to eat or wear, to far-reaching decisions about health care and personal or financial matters. When our ability to make our own decisions is impaired due to dementia, learning or intellectual disability, mental illness, substance abuse or brain injury, there is a need for clear assessment processes to decide whether someone has the capacity to make their own decisions, who should make decisions on their behalf, and on what basis such decisions should be made. 'Assessment of Mental Capacity: A New Zealand Guide for Doctors and Lawyers' has been written to serve the needs of doctors, lawyers, health practitioners, families and whānau. It is written by experts from a range of disciplines including law, medicine and ethics.
