In 2007 The Mental Capacity Act came into effect providing a new statutory framework for decision making. This book is a practical guide to working within the requirements of the Act, identifying situations where staff will need to be familiar with the Act and Code of Practice and providing checklists and exercises to help people to ensure compliance with the new requirements. This edition also includes the complete text of the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards and will be of immense value to Best Interest Assessors.
