Describe factors that influence the capacity of an individual to express consent

Medical Condition: Pain, discomfort, distress and even mild cognitive impairment can prevent an individual to express consent.


Mental Health: Mental health is a great factor which influences the capacity of an individual to understand, retain, use and judge the information to express their valid consent.


Disability: Due to physical disability an individual may not be able to express their consent verbally, non-verbally or in writings.


Fear and experience: Panic and past bad experience may put an impact on an individual to express consent.


Financial Hardship: Due to an individual’s present and past financial hardship, their thoughts may go towards ‘another bill’ which may put an impact on expressing consent. In some cases, they will try hard to avoid it diplomatically such as by not giving signature, nothing in writings, only nodding head.
