About the course

A course designed to help medical, nursing and other healthcare professionals research, manage and record complex capacity assessments within the patient care environment. 

Understanding a patient's mental capacity is a key aspect of the patient-medical professional's relationship, and a mental capacity assessment helps determine whether an individual can safely make specific decisions about their welfare. 

Supported by the latest research in the field, and taught by legal and psychiatric experts, the course teaches advanced skills and is run in partnership with Mental Health and Justice.

Learning objectives
Identify complex factors associated with capacity assessments Discuss strategies used to resolve complex capacity cases
Evaluate complex capacity assessments using legal criteria (the Mental Capacity Act) Record satisfactory capacity assessments in complex cases
