CategoryNewsDate

The Mental Capacity Law team has updated their Guide to Best Interests.

The purpose of this document is to provide for social workers and those working in front-line clinical settings a brief overview of the law and principles relating to the assessment of best interests. Its focus is on: (a) how to apply the MCA 2005 principles when assessing best interests; and (b) how to record your assessment, primarily in the context of health and welfare decisions. It is a companion to our brief guide to carrying out capacity assessments.
