Mental Capacity Act v6

The Mental Capacity Act aims to protect vulnerable people who may lack the capacity to make decisions for themselves. Our E-Learning course provides clear guidelines for carers and professionals about who should take decisions on behalf of service users as well as when and how. It also includes the impact of the Care Act 2014 and contributes to the Care Certificate Standards.

Mental Capacity Act v6 E-Learning Aims

In 2007, the Mental Capacity Act was brought in to coordinate and clarify the law about the care and treatment of people who lack this capacity. It was designed to protect the rights of the individual and to empower vulnerable people who:

  • Have always had difficulty making decisions for themselves
  • Are no longer able to make a decision
  • Are temporarily unable to make a decision

It created new powers and organisations to protect individuals and help to clarify what is expected of staff.

Mental Capacity Act v6 E-Learning Objectives

Our Mental Capacity Act E-Learning aims to provide Professional and Care Staff with key information about the Act and describes the changes that have occurred as a result of it.

The Act gives staff and carers clear guidance about:

  • What to do to help someone make their own decisions
  • How to work out if someone can make their own decisions
  • What to do if someone cannot make a decision

With the introduction of the Care Certificate in April 2015, learning outcomes, competences and standards of care are clearly set out to help ensure that Healthcare and Social Care Workers provide caring, compassionate and good quality care.

Our course contributes to the Care Certificate Standards 3,6,9 and 14.
