Good Question interview prompts go live on Ether Books

I get very excited when something I wrote is published. Mostly these days, that’s fiction but today Ether has gone the extra mile and taken a chance on something quite different. Capacity to consent is a difficult quality to assess but the law requires us to do it. Mostly, clinicians have been using rather haphazard methods but since 1999 I’ve been developing, with colleagues, a more reliable approach. Good Question is the result, and today a set of prompts for interviewers went live on the Ether app.

The prompts can be downloaded free to iOS and Andriod devices (with Kindle Fire on its way), and the Ether app itself is also free, as are the resources on the GQ website. Find us there or on Facebook, or follow us on twitter – @GQinterview

So here I go, cracking a metaphorical bottle of champagne over our bows – hip hooray!

Good Question

GQ logoGood Question is a technique that supports professionals in assessing people for decisional capacity, in line with the UK Mental Capacity Act (2005) and the US framework for legal capacity. The website is not fully stocked yet but if you Google it, it will do its best to say hello. There’s work in progress to put prompts on an app for your Smartphone too – how handy is that? More as it bubbles to the surface.
