Ethics, Law, and Aging Review, Volume 10

Although the topic of decision making capacity and older persons has been discussed in the literature, there still is much to be learned about it theoretically and practically. Experts continue to disagree about which standards are important for assessing decision making capacity. Questions such as: “When should a capacity assessment be done on an older person and by whom?” are covered by the editors.

Topics included in this volume are the application of an original framework for ethical decision making in long term care; an elder’s capacity to decide to remain living alone in the community; the quest for helpful standardized instruments for evaluating decision making capacity; and end-of-life liability issues.
