Capacity for care providers

In this video, I seek to answer a question I very often get asked – namely “why do I keep having to fill out capacity assessments?”  I talk about why thinking about capacity is important, when to think about it, the difference between a capacity assessment and a capacity determination, and why we should be following the examples of the courts, and focusing on fewer, better, capacity assessments.

The slides are here.

Caveat; none of this constitutes legal advice, and this is an area where tempers can fray, so please seek your own before changing your practice (if this video makes you think it might be an idea).
