One of the most challenging aspects of caring for a person living with dementia is guiding them and their family and carers through issues brought on by diminishing capacity.
This interactive webinar will offer a clear approach for GPs and other health practitioners when faced with questions regarding capacity of their patients.
Our GP presenters will:
• explain the differences between decision-making ability, capacity and competency in relation to people living with dementia
• apply a structured approach when assessing whether a person living with dementia has capacity for specific tasks
• clarify the duty of care in relation to confidentiality for your patients living with dementia
SUITABLE FOR GPs, Primary Health Care Nurses, Health Professionals
