Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Queenslanders with impaired decision-making capacity

From 2009 to 2011, we partnered with Griffith University, Central Queensland University and James Cook University to explore the notion of ‘impaired capacity’ in relation to Indigenous Queenslanders. We also wanted to better understand the interaction that Indigenous people and communities have with Queensland’s guardianship system.

In 2011, the three universities published a report—Impaired Decision-Making Capacity and Indigenous Queenslanders Final Report—presenting the insights from the research. We published a summary of the report.
