Introducing our new Mental Capacity Handbook
This new handbook is an essential resource for staff dealing with service users who may at times lack capacity, and the best course of action to take in line with the Mental Capacity Act 2005.
It looks at numerous scenarios and gives examples of the decision to be made in each case and what steps were taken. Demonstrating that service users make their own decisions where possible, and if unable, care is planned in their best interests in the least restrictive way possible.
The forms available to capture this information, available from Standex Systems, can be found within the handbook.
