Vulnerable individuals can sometimes lack the mental capacity to make best-interest decisions for themselves. This course dives into the main principles of the Mental Capacity Act 2005, exploring the rights of patients who lack capacity and your responsibilities as a care provider. It is a comprehensive training program for anyone who works in the health care or social care sector.
Throughout the course, you will gain the skills to support and protect patients who lack capacity, assisting them in making decisions and safeguarding them from ill-treatment and neglect. It provides practical training and guidance on the steps to assessing mental capacity, as well as how to challenge the result of an assessment.
What’s more, you will familiarise with patient confidentiality guidelines and record-keeping best practices to ensure your compliance and proficiency in this field. Not only will you gain an excellent understanding of the MCA and the public bodies and services created by it, but you will have the awareness to promote human rights and help people plan for a brighter future.
Please note: This course only gives you the theoretical knowledge that you need to excel in this field. This Assessing Mental Capacity Certificate Course doesn’t entitle you to practise as a specialist in this specific field.
