"Legal Aspects of Mental Capacity will assist practitioners in understanding the basic provisions of the Act and how it applies to their professional responsibilities. It is also intended to be of assistance to the many carers who find themselves in the position of needing to make decisions on behalf of mentally incapacitated relatives and friends. Each chapter sets out the basis provisions, followed by a series of scenarios dealing with practical concerns which are discussed in the light of the new legislation."
