describe factors that influence the capacity of an individual to express consent
The term “consent capacity” describes an adult’s ability to understand information relevant to making an informed, voluntary decision. [ A wide variety of diseases, disorders, conditions, and injuries can affect a person’s ability to understand such information. Informed consent is a phrase often used in law to indicate that the consent a person gives meets certain minimum standards. In
order to give informed consent, the individual concerned must have adequate reasoning faculties and be in possession of all relevant facts at the time consent is given. Impairments to reasoning and judgment which may make it impossible for someone to give informed consent include such factors as basic intellectual or emotional immaturity, high levels of stress such as PTSD or as severe mental retardation, severe mental illness, intoxication, severe sleep deprivation, Alzheimer's disease, or being in a coma. ]

explain the importance of using agreed risk assessment processes to support choice in adult social care
Weegy: A person centred approach seeks to focus on people's rights to have the lifestyle that they chose, including the right to make 'bad' decisions. [ The approach described here uses person centred thinking tools, to help people and those who care about them most think in a positive and productive way about how to ensure that they can achieve the changes they want to see while keeping the issue of risk in its place. This in essence is a process to gather, in partnership with the person, the fullest information and evidence to demonstrate that we have thought deeply about all the issues involved. Decisions are then guided by what is important to the person, what is needed to keep them healthy and safe and on what the law says. ] (More)

describe person centred approaches
Weegy: Person centred approaches is a phrase used to describe ways of listening carefully to what a person has to say. To find out about what is important to a person, what they want to achieve, their dreams, hopes, fears, needs and wishes. [ It also includes what a person does not want to have happen for them. Family members, and people who are important in the lives of the person with a disability can be included in the discussions.

The approaches are a way of thinking about putting the person at the centre of decision making. A person centred approach is about listening carefully and responding. ] (More)
