Health professionals involved in making capacity and best interests decisions will find the tests for handling the internet helpful as the court reflects that: “The internet and associated social media networks are particularly important for people who have disabilities, and/or social media problems.” Putting it simply, it is identified as a right within the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disability.
