    Best Interests Decision-making Matters for Clinicians

    This session explores 'best interests', what it means for disabled people and how best interest decisions are made for disabled people who lack capacity.

    The word order 'disabled children and young people' is used in this and all the Disability Matters sessions. This is because disabling factors are most often external to the person and are therefore something that everyone in society can do something about.
