The Centre for Ethics in Medicine, University of Bristol, in conjunction with Clarke Willmott LLP will be holding a conference on legal and ethical dilemmas in the care of individuals who lack capacity.

This conference develops work on dying well with reduced agency,  being undertaken by researchers in the GW4 Dying Well network. It will be of interest to medical practitioners and agencies supporting individuals facing the challenges of loss of capacity. We will be looking at the practical applications of The Mental Capacity and Care Acts with a range of speakers drawn from academic and practising lawyers in this field.
