Respect Know Act 5-minute Survey

ADACAS would like to know about how people with impaired decision making ability make healthcare decisions.

We would like to know about the needs and experiences of carers in supporting healthcare decisions.

We would also like to know about the role and experiences of health professionals in supporting healthcare decisions.

As part of collecting information for our project, we want to hear about the experiences of people with impaired decision making ability, their carers, and health professionals through surveys and conversation.

We want to ensure the availability of support for people with impaired decision making ability when they are making a healthcare decision. We hope this will improve the active participation of people with impaired decision making ability in health services.

Throughout this survey we use the phrase ‘people with impaired decision making ability’. We use it to include people with intellectual impairment, dementia, people experiencing mental ill-health or people with an acquired brain injury, all of which can impair decision making ability. It also refers to people whose decision making ability may not be recognised by others.
