Mental Capacity Act

Mental Capacity Act

About this Lunch & Learn

This Lunch and Learn resource will give a good understanding of the importance of assessing capacity and treating patients with dignity and respect at all times within the law. The resource looks at mental capacity and how to assess it. It describes the importance of the Mental Capacity Act and its 5 main principles.

The legal framework is discussed along with how the Lasting Power of Attorney, Court of Protection & Advanced Directive to Refuse Treatment fit into the treatment of the patient. The new Liberty Protection Standards (LPS) are discussed as they are expected come into force to replace the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS).

There is opportunity for the team to discuss all aspects of mental capacity and how the practice treat patients who may lack mental capacity.

Certificates of attendance are provided as part of the package, and don’t forget to log your learning points & reflections as part of your CPD. CQC are particularly keen to see any evidence of your learning and how you apply it.

We welcome any feedback from you and your staff when you have run any of our Lunch and Learn training resources.
