The Journal of Participatory Medicine has published a new case study entitled “Autonomy in Jeopardy: Contrasting Participatory Health Models with Patient Decision Making Under Mental Health Law.” The authors examine the problem of how to achieve patient participation in societies where people with mental illness can have their decision making power overridden by mental health law. The study looks at the situation in the state of Victoria, Australia.
