The Mental Capacity Act

The Mental Capacity Act (2005) came into force partly in April and partly in October 2007. It changed how we must work with people who cannot make decisions for themselves. It extended the 'duty of care' and created a brand new code of practice that we all must adhere to.Having attended this workshop participants will be able to; * Understand the background to the Act and their new, changed responsibilities; * Understand the key principles of the Act and the 4 elements of decision-making; * Understand how to use the law rather than fall foul of it; * Understand their responsibilities over best interests and the truth about relatives’ rights; * Use the Act’s checklists to ensure that they stay within the law; * Work with the new compulsory state appointed advocacy service (IMCAs); * Know the difference between restriction and deprivation of liberty (only one is legal); * Gain the knowledge required to keep them working within the law.
