Key Aims of the workshop are to inform you of the key messages of the Mental Capacity Act 2005

  • Be aware of the five guiding principles and how they should be used.
  • What it means to lack capacity.
  • Be aware of the functional test for capacity
  • Know that if a person lacks capacity for a specific decision there will be a decision maker.
  • Be aware that whatever is put in place when the person lacks capacity must be in their Best Interest.
