Mental Capacity; Updating New Zealand’s Law and Practice. 2016. Alison Douglass, Barrister, LLB, MBHL

This report is the result of a legal research project undertaken by the writer as the 2014 recipient of the New Zealand Law Foundation International Research Fellowship. The project has involved analysis of relevant New Zealand law plus analysis of the legislative framework provided by the Mental Capacity Act 2005 (for England and Wales) and its associated Code of Practice. Key informants for this research include leading experts, academics and members of the judiciary in the United Kingdom, as well as a wide range of people working in the health and disability sector in New Zealand. A survey of doctors’ educational needs was undertaken to inform the toolkit on assessing capacity.
