Assessment tools and checklists
GP’s told us that they often have very limited time in which to think about capacity to make a decision and it may be that a complete form is not appropriate in urgent or very time limited interactions, as such a checklist and aide memoire have been developed as reference tools and further resources are included in the resource pack.
How assessments are recorded will be determined by individual GPs and practices however these tools set out the things that should be considered. Additional information is also available in relation to specific cognitive assessment tools.
A quick reference and full assessment template have been developed as part of this toolkit and these can be downloaded for use and incorporated into local patient database systems if desired.
