Mental Capacity & the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS)
Half-Day Session Theory & Scenario-Based Group Work
The Mental Capacity Act 2005 provides a statutory and quality framework to protect some of the most vulnerable people in society. It makes it clear who can take decisions, in what situations and how they should go about this in respect of people who lack capacity to make decisions for themselves.
When delivering person-centred care, it is vital to provide choices. A person’s decision-making skills may be affected when their mental capacity is diminished. It is vital that health and social care professionals are equipped to deal appropriately with any issues surrounding mental capacity.
This course offers the practical knowledge and skills to appropriately support those with varying levels of diminished mental capacity.
This course aims to increase the learners’ awareness of mental health to ensure they are equipped to deal appropriately with the needs of colleagues, family members or service-users who may be experiencing mental health issues.
This course is split into two sections, the first part involves group discussion, trainer presentation, interactive discussions and scenarios. Followed by a practical-based element for the second section.
