The Assisted Decision Making (Capacity) Act 2015 training has been developed for social care staff and managers working with people with disabilities. This training will provide knowledge and understanding of how the Act may affect the clients they support.
The training looks at how the Assisted Decision Making (Capacity) Act 2015 is replacing the Lunacy Regulations Act 1871. The training will aid learning and discussion on how the Act will impact practice.
The training will give participants the knowledge on how to complete a functional assessment as well as when and why you would complete one. Participants will also gain insight on the effect the Act will have on current wardships (Wards of Court).
The training provides information on the mechanisms the Act (once commenced) will provide to assist decision making for relevant clients.
