Course Description
When you have an individual in your care, you may come across someone who may lack the capacity to make a decision; understanding the legalities of assisting someone in making life-affecting decisions is critical. This course gives you a fuller picture of the legalities of The Mental Capacity Act and how it affects those who lack capacity. The Mental Capacity Act is designed to protect a person's rights when they are incapacitated to look after themselves. As you are in a caring role, you need to know what the Mental Capacity Act states, how it is upheld and how it supports those to whom it applies. This course will give you the knowledge and confidence to understand this. During the session, you'll cover the following:
  • What the Mental Capacity Act is, and why it exists
  • Who it affects
  • The core principles of the Act
  • Ways to assess a person's mental capacity
  • A range of ways that may help a person with a mental illness to make their own decisions
  • The conditions for and meaning of 'Deprivation of Liberty'
  • The forms of 'Lasting Power of Attorney' and when it can be used in a supportive role for someone's welfare
  • When and how to make 'Advance Decisions'
  • The Mental Capacity Act summed up.
This half-day course comprises an engaging mix of activities. After taking the course, you’ll be asked to complete a simple multiple-choice assessment. You will be given a certificate to acknowledge the passing of the course.
