Product Description

Synopsis

The Mental Capacity Act 2005 provides for the first time, a legal framework for assessing whether a person has capacity to make decisions and defines how others can make decisions on their behalf. Its scope is wide-ranging involving decisions regarding personal welfare (care and treatment) and financial affairs. Statutory and non-statutory organisations providing health and social care for people who lack capacity will have to ensure that their policies and procedures comply with the Act from April 2007. "Working With The Mental Capacity Act 2005" provides a detailed explanation of the new law and its implications for working practice. It is written in an accessible style and is designed to be of maximum use to health and social care professionals so they feel confident using the Act in daily practice. It covers all key parts of the new legislation including: the five principles; a standard test for capacity; making decisions on behalf of others; restraint; advance decisions; lasting powers of attorney; advocacy; payment and expenditure; Court of Protection; deputies; Public Guardian; and, research. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read 31 Mar 2009

Format:Paperback
Great book, easy to read. I've had the privilege of being in a lecture by Mughal and she is an excellent orator and very knowledgeable - which has translated to the book. Highly recommend the book to practitioners in this field.

As with their other book that I have read, the authors do well to make a pretty complicated law quite easy to understand and navigate.
