Assessing capacity for patients with a psychological condition

6 June 2019

Comcare recognises the critical role General Practitioners (GPs) play in helping people with ill health or injury to recover and participate in work. To support this role, they have produced a new resource for GPs on assessing capacity for patients with a psychological condition.

Presented by consultant psychiatrist Dr Dielle Felman, the five-minute video provides better practice information and recommendations for treating health practitioners on how to practically assess capacity for work for patients with a psychological condition.

The resource is also useful for those supporting workers with a psychological condition, such as practice nurses, psychologists and physiotherapists, to understand how capacity has been assessed and certified.
