The Assisted Decision Making (Capacity) Act 2015 will have significant implications for health and social care providers in the provision of safe person-centred care, based on respecting the individual rights of each person. In response to these implications, the HSE has established a National Assisted Decision Making Steering Group to develop a programmatic response to the legislation to ensure effective compliance and implementation.

In order to inform the development of a guide on the Act, and the accompanying training programme, it is essential that we get an idea of the knowledge of the Act with staff across different disciplines in the health services, what supports may be required to implement the Act and to listen to staff about their day to day experiences around capacity. 

The briefing will cover the following:

  • What is the Act?
  • What the HSE is doing in preparation for commencement
  • Question and Answer session with HSE members of the ADM (Capacity) Steering Group and legal represenatitives


The briefing session will be attended by Caoimhe Gleeson, Project Lead on the Assisted Decision Making (Capacity) Act project and Patricia Rickard Clarke, Solicitor and former Law Reform Commissioner.
