Mental Capacity Overview
This six hour course provides a concise overview of four crucial and related issues: Mental Capacity Act 2005, capacity assessment, best interests decision-making and DOLS. It is an excellent introduction or refresher and is suitable for nursing and care staff.

For a more in-depth look at the above issues I recommend my three-hour Mental Capacity Act, Mental Capacity Assessment, Best Interests Decisions and DOLS courses.
