Making your own decisions: When it comes to capacity, relationships matter
"This session is about the twists and turns people experience when their capacity is in question. Getting a capacity assessment is not straightforward. Then, when capacity is assessed, the criteria and processes can be narrow and unfriendly.
In this session, we share findings of some of the ways capacity decision-makers make decisions. We discuss how we think these decisions could be made better by thinking about the people being assessed in terms of their relationships with others."
