The Time for a Mental Capacity Act Is Now

Every day, we make small and big decisions in our lives. But what if one day, we find ourselves in circumstances where we are no longer able to make those decisions for ourselves, especially on things like health or even assets? How can we ensure every individual’s wishes and autonomy is respected even when they can’t voice it? Here to talk to me about what it means to have the mental capacity to make such decisions and the need for a mental capacity act in Malaysia are Anit Kaur Randhawa, vice president (legal) and Dr Mark Tan Kiak Min, vice president (medical), of the Medico-Legal Society of Malaysia.
