Mental capacity and supported decision making


As part of the ongoing development of the RCSLT’s online Clinical Resources, we are looking for members to help develop new information on the role of speech and language therapy in mental capacity assessment.

The following information will be developed for a general audience:

  • factsheet(s)
  • summary for decision-makers/commissioners
  • national policy context
  • position paper
  • case studies


The following information will be developed for members only:

  • introduction to mental capacity assessment
  • role of speech and language therapy
  • evidence and research
  • guidelines and supporting resources
  • RCSLT Bulletin feature articles
  • useful contacts

The work is estimated to take place between September 2017 and spring 2018.
