ConceptMental capacity
DescriptionThe ability of an individual to use and understand information to make a decision or plan.
UseUse to record details about the ability of an individual to use and understand information to make a decision or plan. This archetype is intended to capture information about the mental capacity status of an individual, which is typically assessed in relation to a specific decision or plan that needs to be made about their medical care or treatment at a particular time. If specific details about the mental capacity assessments are required, additional archetypes can be nested within the 'Assessment details' SLOT.
PurposeTo record details about the ability of an individual to use and understand information to make a decision or plan.
