The Mental Capacity Act; a Change in Practice - Capacity and Best Interest Assessments Masterclass

Although recognised as a “visionary piece of legislation”, the House of Lords Select Committee noted that it has “suffered from a lack of awareness and a lack of understanding”. The Law Commission has since recommended that
“the DoLS should be repealed and a new scheme introduced as a matter of pressing urgency”, with the Government confirming it is committed to reform of the legislation. (NB: the LawCom quote is taken from its summary of its consultation, and the ref to the Government is paraphrased from comments made by Caroline Dinenage (MoJ Minister) on 14/3/2018).

This Master Class will consider how the current Mental Capacity Act applies to day-to-day practice, with a focus on capacity and best interest assessments and how these can protect the healthcare practitioner and improve patient care.  The day will also explore the recommendations made by the House Of Lords and the Government’s response, including the new Mental Capacity Advisory Board and potential new legislative framework.
