Adults with Incapacity (Scotland)

Clinical, Managerial, Non-Clinical

eLearning For You endorsement NCFE logo


To provide an overview of the Adults with Incapacity (Scotland) Act 2000 and the implications it has for the service user and service provider.

We all make decisions, every day of our lives. Most of us can make these decisions for ourselves, sometimes with advice or support for the more serious or complex ones. Others, due to illness or impairment, will need considerable assistance to make these decisions to improve or maintain their quality of life.

The Adults with Incapacity (Scotland) Act gives clear information for supporting people who lack the capacity to make decisions. This course will illustrate the processes of decision making, capacity assessments, decisions for the benefit of the individual, and bodies who work under the Adults with Incapacity (Scotland) Act.
