About this item

Aligned with the College of Social Work's Best Interests Assessor (BIA) capabilities, the statutory requirements for the BIA role in the Mental Capacity Regulations 2008, and the continuing professional development curriculum for social workers on the application of the Mental Capacity Act in the UK, this handbook describes the ethical and practical challenges of applying UK law to practice to Best Interests Assessors working with individuals who may lack mental capacity to consent to their care and treatment in care homes and hospitals. It outlines the BIA's duties, responsibilities, and powers, how the role is regarded, and the impact of significant case law since its implementation; the values and challenges of the role and contributions made by social work, nursing, and occupational therapy to the role; the practical skills and knowledge required for working with individuals and their families, friends, and carers, as well as other roles; making Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards decisions; evidence-informed practice; ethical dilemmas; recording; continuing professional development; and the future of the BIA role.
