This interactive tool will help you decide what to do when you doubt your patient’s capacity to make decisions about their care.
The advice is based on the principles in our guidance Consent: patients and doctors making decisions together and Treatment and care towards the end of life: good practice in decision-making.
Answer the questions and follow the prompts to move through the tool.
You’ll find case studies and other useful resources which help to explain the issues. You can download key points, guidance extracts and case studies, and there’s also a reflections record which you can keep open and update while you make your way through the decision-making process.Get started
