CPD - Assessing Mental Capacity Training
This Assessing Mental Capacity training course guides you through the process of assessing a person’s mental capacity to make decisions for themselves. It looks at the Mental Capacity Act 2005 and the 5 key principles involved in assessing mental capacity. It also looks at capacity assessment examples and how to deal with disagreements and complaints.
Assessing someone’s mental capacity – their ability to make decisions for themselves – requires a clear set of guidelines and procedures.
This course explains how to help someone make decisions for themselves, looking at who may need help, how to help and the extra support you may need to do this. It also takes you through the two-stage test involved in making a capacity assessment if you should need to do so.
A key part of this training is to emphasise the importance of keeping the person at the centre of the decision-making process and acting sensitively.
