This session discusses Advance Care Planning and decision-making with disabled people of all ages, including using the framework and elements of the Mental Capacity Act.
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.
