Found this very relevant to my job.

While early part of the presentation is relevant to those caring for adults, the latter part and the case studies are focussed on the rights of the child/parent to seek/refuse treatment. An interesting listen, but not overly informative for those that only care for adults of all ages.

Beginning of video cut out and most important information was missed. This led to the remainder of video being slightly confusing.
