Description

This module aims to give readers an overview of the Mental Capacity Act 2005 and its role in supporting the right to autonomy of people who, because of their disability, may unreasonably and unjustifiably be excluded from decisions with which they should and can be involved. The module also considers situations in which people need support in making decisions and how such support can be given. Finally, it outlines the principles to be followed when making a decision on behalf of a person who lacks capacity.

Objectives

After reading this module you should be able to:
1. List the key principles of the Mental Capacity Act 2005.

2. Explain when an assessment of mental capacity would be necessary.

3. Discuss ways to support people’s decision making.

4. Identify circumstances in which decisions can be made on behalf of people who lack capacity.

5. Understand what ‘best interest’ decisions are.
