Making Best Interests Decisions: People and Processes

The Best Interests Decisions Study was the first large-scale national research to find out about professional practices in best interests decisions made under the Mental Capacity Act 2005. The study was led by the Norah Fry Research Centre at Bristol University, in collaboration with the University of Bradford and a UK research and development charity, the Mental Health Foundation. The study was funded by the Department of Health and was completed in 2011.
