Supported decision making - experiences, approaches and preferences
Research output: Book/Report › Other report
used a coproduction approach between disabled people, Praxis Care, Mencap NI and Queen’s University Belfast.
The project involved peer researchers interviewing 41 people with mental health problems and/or intellectual disabilities to gain an in-depth understanding of their experiences of support for decision making and their preferences and ideas
for how decision making should be supported in the future. The project therefore provides an overview of experiences of support as well as
identifying the supports which work for them. It is intended that this will inform how the new support principle in the Mental Capacity Act (Northern Ireland) 2016 should be implemented in practice.
