Mental Capacity Training for Health Care Professionals


We offer mental capacity training to NHS Trust staff which focuses on applying the Mental Capacity Act (2005) to patients' health and welfare decisions.


  • Engaging video training, with live Q&A, from highly experienced mental capacity experts

  • Suitable for all allied health professionals

  • Practical approach to conducting mental capacity assessments in healthcare settings

  • Overcomes staff confidence issue

  • Alleviates pressure on time-poor support staff and discharge management

  • Training is supplied either as on-demand videos under an unlimited annual licence, or via webinar as a half-day package


We provide the training via three video modules which cover:

  • Understanding Mental Capacity

  • Threshold of Understanding and fluctuating capacity

  • Communication and supported decision making


Each video is 40-55 mins long and uses case studies and practical examples to bring these often complex and daunting areas to life, focussing primarily on Principles 1 - 3 of the Mental Capacity Act (2005).

Extract from Module 3: Communication and Supported Decision Making


A clinical expert with over 25 years’ experience of working with people with reduced cognition. He is a multi-award-winning author and expert witness specialising in the assessment of mental capacity and financial vulnerability.

Danielle specialises in working with adults with acquired neurological disorders, such as traumatic brain injury, stroke, dementia and motor neurone disease.

Dartford & Gravesham approached us asking us to provide practical training aimed at Band 5 and 6 ward nurses who lacked the confidence to undertake assessments on patients. A large proportion of staff come from abroad, meaning they are not conversant with the MCA (2005). This all put pressure on support staff and impacted on discharge management.

Our mental capacity training videos provide the ideal solution for their staff as they are able to access the training from their own e-learning platform, at a time most suitable to them, and with unlimited access they were able to open the training to a wide group of staff.
