Mental Capacity Act
The Mental Capacity Act 2005 (MCA) is designed to protect and empower individuals who may lack the mental capacity to make their own decisions about their care and treatment. Although the Act came in to force 2005, knowledge and understanding remain patchy and sadly concerns about the treatment of people who lack capacity continue to arise. This has been highlighted through CQC monitoring reports 2014/15 and they state they will continue to monitor through their inspections. For those wishing to develop their knowledge and skills in providing care in accordance with the Mental Capacity Act 2005, this training aims to address this. Our one-day course with an experienced Mental Health Practitioner will provide you with a basic working knowledge of the legislation & policy and what it means for you in practice for your job role.
