Course Outline: Mental Capacity Act Refresher: Learning Lessons from Court of Protection Cases delivered by ST Thomas Training
Annual refresher to update your knowledge on the Mental Capacity Act
The training is split into two sessions over consecutive days. The training will look at a range of cases which have been considered by the Court of Protection, to see what lessons can be learnt for our everyday practice.
Mental Capacity Act cases go to the Court of Protection either where there is conflict amongst the people involved, and/or where the issue is so serious or complicated that it cannot be resolved through meetings and negotiation. The rulings of the Court, and the reasons for those rulings, can be invaluable in helping health & social care practitioners deal with similar issues in their own practice.
Participants should already be familiar with the Mental Capacity Act and the Code of Practice, because this is not an awareness session.
