We have received some information from the Personal Advocacy and Safeguarding Adults Trust (PASAT) about supportive decision making around the COVID-19 vaccine.

They are able to give free support across New Zealand to:

  • work with people and their supporters who may lack confidence with Supported Decision Making to coach them on strategies and approaches, specifically regarding whether or not they wish to receive the Covid-19 vaccination.
  • work with people who may not have any other supporters to complete and document a Supported Decision Making process regarding whether or not they wish to receive the Covid-19 vaccination.

You can find more information by downloading their flyer:
