Mental Capacity Act (MCA) 2005 Policy and Procedure

Clinical Governance Risk Management and Safeguarding Region: | Reference: DCR10

Converted to new QCS policy format, as well as adding a greater emphasis throughout on the decision-specific nature of the Mental Capacity Act and its emphasis on finding the least restrictive option when making decisions for someone who lacks mental capacity. Direction has been added to the Care Quality Commission guidance for providers and a greater emphasis on the need for a training provision for all members of staff in the principles of the Mental Capacity Act 2005. A reference to making or ensuring contemporaneous notes are made has also been added in line with the General Dental Council requirements.
