Assessing Mental Capacity Course

The Mental Capacity Act 2005 was formulated with a view to providing clear guidelines regarding assessing the mental capacity of an individual. Lack of mental capacity can lead to loss of freedom, and others may make decisions for you. This is often a transitional point in the life of any individual. This makes it all the more important that mental capacity must be evaluated using the correct techniques and methods. It’s important to assess an individual’s mental capacity correctly, and the conclusion should not be based on the individual’s age, appearance or disabilities, if any.

What You Will Learn in This Course:

  • Why there are concerns regarding assessing mental capacity
  • The relationship between mental capacity and decision-making
  • An overview of the Mental Capacity Act (MCA) and how it underlies the principles of mental capacity assessment
  • The two-stage assessment test and the five principles of the MCA
  • Who can assess an individual’s mental capacity
  • How mental capacity is time and item specific, and how it can fluctuate

The Benefits of Taking This Course:

  • You will be able to appreciate the relevance of the MCA in mental capacity assessment
  • You will learn how to avoid the common pitfalls, such as presumptions or prejudice when assessing mental capacity
  • You will be able to make a much fairer, more reliable and unbiased assessment of mental capacity
  • You will learn to differentiate between unwise decisions and lack of mental capacity and give the individual the benefit of the doubt

The outcome of a mental capacity assessment can change the course of an individual’s life by depriving them of their freedom. Therefore, it’s extremely important that the assessment process is reliable and as accurate as possible.

The course is broken down into 3 individual modules. Each module takes between 20 and 90 minutes on average to study. Although you are free to spend as much or as little time as you feel necessary on each module, simply log in and out of the course at your convenience.

Whilst on maternity leave I started thinking about in what capacity I'd go back to work, and if there was something different I could do. I came across reed courses and chose this course in PA and Admin and another in HR.

I was so happy they were on offer! I chose them because the course modules were comprehensive.

I can sit and do modules with my newborn son on my lap via my iPhone. It's so handy, the modules are clear and concise.

I'm so happy I chose this course. I can't wait to add it to my CV and see what jobs I can get.

Holly Horton

Very Informative course, breaks everything down easily into simple steps.Thank you.

After much searching, I stumbled across this online course which sounded perfect for what I wanted and was available at a very affordable cost. This is the first time I have taken an online course, so wasn’t sure what to expect or if my money was going to be well spent.

The course is great, it was very easy to follow with simple, clear instructions and the additional use of video demonstrations that I found extremely helpful. It was handy to be able to print off all the course modules to keep for future reference and nice to receive a certificate upon completion.

Whilst I will probably never have a career as nail technician, I have gained what I wanted from this course, lots of knowledge and new confidence to do manicures/pedicures on both myself, friends & family.

Janice Waterman

For me, as a current employee in Human Resources, this HR Management Course was an excellent opportunity to get more insight of the industry and my job role. The course provided with a lot of relevant information that I could relate to in my job role as well as find ideas that I would be able to adapt in my workplace. I am keen on sharing my knowledge and implementing these new ideas in order to help our company achieve success. Would highly recommend this HRM course to people desiring to join Human Resources as well as the ones already working in the industry as everyone will be able to obtain something that will help them develop as a worker, a person and a future HR Manager!

Sandra Zinkeviciute

I am so impressed with this course. For starters it was hugely discounted which saved me money, secondly it is really easy to use. It is jam packed with information yet so easy to follow and they layout is very clean, clear and precise. I have learnt so much from this course already and I can even revisit modules as and when I need to. If you are an aspiring Makeup Artist, then this course will definitely lead you on the right path and it teaches you how to deal with clients and how to get the best out of your career.

Esther Lawrence

Thoroughly enjoyed this course. Have decided to change my career path but have no real experience or qualifications in the job I really want to do.

I have always wanted to work with animals but ended up in the retail sector. While I do enjoy that, I feel now is the time to get out there and do what I want to do. I have sent in my CV to a dog groomer near me with a copy of my certificate attached. Fingers crossed!

I enjoyed this Diploma so much I shall be having a go at another pet/dog related one in the very near future!
