Mental Capacity Act Course

The Mental Capacity Act course aims to educate participants on the Mental Capacity Act (MCA), which was fully enacted on 1st April 2009. The Act was legislated to provide guidance to providers of health and social care, including providers of dental care and treatment, on how to ensure that the best possible decisions are made about the care or treatment of patients who do not have the capacity to make some decisions for themselves.

The Act starts from the premise that such patients will continue to make decisions about their own lives whenever possible or be included in such decisions as much as possible at all other times. If, however, decisions must be made on their behalf, they are always made in their best interests. Dentists and their teams are usually well-versed in this approach but are often unfamiliar with the Mental Capacity Act (MCA).


  • Setting and background of the MCA
  • Policy and procedure
  • Appropriate responses
  • Patient psychology
  • Mental capacity assessments
  • Record-keeping
  • Maintaining informed consent 

On successful completion of the Mental Capacity Act course, each delegate will receive a certificate with 2 hours enhanced CPD. This training meets the criteria for GDC development outcomes A. For more information on this course or to request a group booking, please contact us.
