This session, "Capacity, Competence, and Capability" in the Principles to Practice: Introduction to Health Care Ethics Seminar Series will:

• Consider different kinds of capacity assessments in medicine, and the ethical tensions that may underlie them.
• Reflect on difficult situations within medical ethics where capacity assessments may be central to ethical decision making, but may be difficult to perform.
