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 Mental Capacity 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 Mental Capacity Act.
This course aims to provide an overview of the Mental Capacity Act 2005 and Deprivation of Liberty Safeguard, and the implications that they have for both the service user and service provider.
