Abstract

We respond to commentaries from Barton Palmer and John McMillan on our research findings concerning the assessment of decision-making capacity after brain injury. We found much to agree with and it is striking how so many of the issues relating to decision-making capacity (DMC) assessment find resonances outside of an English jurisdiction. California and New Zealand are clearly grappling with a very similar set of issues and the commentaries speak to the international nature of these discussions.
