We suggest that an investigation of the relationship between awareness and capacity represents the next phase in the research undertaken by Fisher and colleagues. This will allow clinicians and caregivers to implement any strategies and instruments which will help patients overcome functional deficits and maintain their decision-making abilities (e.g. to facilitate comprehension of information relevant to the decision process, Moro et al., 2020).

Abstract

We suggest that an investigation of the relationship between awareness and capacity represents the next phase in the research undertaken by Fisher and colleagues. This will allow clinicians and caregivers to implement any strategies and instruments which will help patients overcome functional deficits and maintain their decision-making abilities (e.g. to facilitate comprehension of information relevant to the decision process, Moro et al., 2020).
