Webpage for the study on which this event was based.

This webinar will share and discuss emerging findings from a study exploring health and social care practitioner attitudes and approaches to mental capacity assessments with people experiencing homelessness and multiple disadvantage.

Factors such as poor mental health, substance use, the effects of trauma and service mistrust, and executive dysfunction in this population mean that assessments under the Mental Capacity Act 2005 can be particularly challenging. This study is exploring what makes a 'good' assessment and if we should be thinking more about mental capacity.

This event will be led by Jess Harris and Stephen Martineau from the Homelessness Research Programme at HSCWRU, King's College London.
