"The British Columbia Law Institute was retained by the BC Centre for Elder Advocacy and Support, on behalf of the BC Adult Abuse and Neglect Prevention Collaborative, to conduct an international review (1) the laws governing capability for decision-making which currently inform guardianship practice, and (2) the existing body of policies, protocols and guidelines that inform capability assessment.  As part of this contract the BCLI  produced a final report that includes an inter-disciplinary best practices tool to guide practitioners working in health care, medicine, law and criminal justice who deal with adults with capability issues."
