Deep brain stimulation and revising the Mental Health Act: the case for intervention-specific safeguards

Download Edit this record How to cite View on PhilPapers
Abstract
Under the current Mental Health Act of England and Wales, it is lawful to perform deep brain stimulation in the absence of consent and independent approval. We argue against the Care Quality Commission's preferred strategy of addressing this problematic issue, and offer recommendations for deep brain stimulation-specific provisions in a revised Mental Health Act.
