Demystifying Mental Capacity: A guide for health and social care professionals

This series of books from Learning Matters is aimed at busy social work and health care practitioners, particularly in the context of integrated health and social care, who are looking to enhance their skills and extend their knowledge. Written from a practical point of view, they have clear links to both qualifying training as well as CPD. They are up-to-date, accessible and totally skills focused.

Set against the backdrop of the Mental Capacity Act 2005, this book explores issues raised by mental capacity within adult safeguarding to highlight and aid professionals to appreciate how mental capacity intersects with risk and vulnerability. Case studies, reflection points and exercise are used to develop understanding and support critical engagement with practice.

Providing guidance from a range of subject experts across the legal, financial, social work, nursing and healthcare disciplines, this book will be invaluable to practitioners in health and social care, and indeed in any profession where issues of mental capacity may be a concern.
