Usage Type :    
Usage Description :    
This subset includes concepts to declare findings indicating the subject of the record's capacity to give consent in their own right. Capacity may be context dependent and the professional should assess prior to any procedure whether formal consent is required/advisable and whether the person has capacity to consent to that procedure. Age (younger or older person) is not in itself an indicator, however it may mean that a formal assessment is advisable. The findings in this subset may result from a formal assessment or from professional judgement.
