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

On 13th March 2014, the House of Lords Select Committee on the Mental Capacity Act 2005 published the report of its ten‐month investigation. The Government responded: “We agree with the Committee’s overall finding: that while the Mental Capacity Act (MCA) was a “visionary piece of legislation“, the Act has “suffered from a lack of awareness and a lack of understanding.”

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.
