What does the Mental Capacity Assessment tool do?   

This online tool enables health professionals and care providers to consistently and objectively determine whether a patient or service user lacks mental capacity and provides assurance that the individual has the required level of understanding, retention and evaluative skills for the decision at hand. Assessments can be paused or repeated to allow for fluctuating capacity.

What are the benefits of the Mental Capacity Assessment tool? 

  • Immediate assessment of an individual’s mental capacity
  • Decision-specific assessments with the threshold of understanding pre-defined for the care provider/health professional
  • Easy to use, saves time, alleviates pressure and overcomes staff confidence issues
  • Fully compliant and accurate report on completion, with all necessary evidence to meet requirements of the Mental Capacity Act (2005)
  • Clear audit trail with reports automatically timed, dated and ID stamped
