 The NAI submission on the Draft Guidelines issued by the HSE for Health and Social Care Professionals in relation to the Assisted Decision Making Act is now available to download here.

The submission discusses a number of issues in relation to the guidance, including the need for equal emphasis on voluntary organisations in the guidance, the availability of co-decision agreements, the need for guidance around recording procedures and practical and resource issues in relation to assessment of functional capacity. In addition, the submission raises issues around the supports required for implementation and the need for information and guidance to be developed for family members and carers of people with neurological conditions.
