As you may be aware the Assisted Decision Making (Capacity) Act 2015 is due to commence in June 2022. Catherine Devaney is representing HSCPs on the HSE ADM Implementation Steering Group, which is working to identify key resources required to support the implementation of the Act.
The attached newsletter has links to a number of resources where you can find out more about the Assisted Decision Making Act. The ADM Status update document has been produced by the HSE National Office for Human Rights and Equality Policy to provide an update on the work that is currently being undertaken to prepare for commencement of the Act.
There is also an overview of the Draft Codes of Practice which are available to view and submit comments on until the 18th Feb at: https://decisionsupportservice.ie/public-consultation/public-consultation-phase-2.
