Half-day masterclass

51 Shades of Grey – The art of capacity assessing

OVERVIEWOUR TRAINERREGISTER TO ATTENDVENUESTESTIMONIALS
OUTLINE
In the field of Adults with Incapacity it seems getting capacity assessing right is the thing that creates the most anxiety amongst practitioners, we know capacity is not black or white but there are so many shades of grey; how is one supposed to make the call – capable, or not?

Developed in partnership with Sandra McDonald, the former Public Guardian in Scotland, this course will guide you through the law, work with case studies to increase your confidence in capacity assessing and conclude with delegates developing their own capacity assessing checklist.
