This document updates previous guidance published in the April 2006 Assessment of Capacity in Adults: Interim Guidance for Psychologists.
The document aims to inform psychologists about capacity assessment, and follows the chronological flow of a well thought through approach to assessment, commencing with an overview of the current legal context, followed by necessary preparatory steps and aspects of completing a best practice assessment (including consideration of the use of psychometric inventories) before drawing together the threads of information collected and forming defensible, balanced, well evidenced opinions, conclusions and recommendations.
