Annual refresher to update your knowledge on the Mental Capacity Act
Course Outline: Mental Capacity Act Refresher: Learning Lessons from Court of Protection Cases delivered by ST Thomas Training
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.
Who should attend?
Anyone who works in a health and/or social care setting (eg hospitals, social worker teams, OT, ISA, residential or community care, GP surgeries etc). Participants should already be familiar with the Mental Capacity Act and the Code of Practice, because this is not an awareness session and designed has an annual refresher after delegates have completed MCA L1, L2 & L3.
This course is to enable managers in the public, voluntary, private and independent sector to fulfil their safeguarding responsibilities effectively, and to work with their partners in the statutory sector to achieve, wherever possible, the outcomes service users wish to achieve for themselves.
Who should attend?
Anyone who works in a managerial or senior capacity in a health or social care provider setting (e.g. residential homes, day centres, supported living, domiciliary care etc.). Participants should already have a good understanding of the basics of Safeguarding Adults as this is not an awareness session.
Safeguarding in a Strength Based Way (All ASC PCC Staff)
Target group: Basic awareness course for all ASC staff.
Aim: A strengths-based approach to adult safeguarding goes beyond a focus on the person’s vulnerability to engaging in conversations which focus on the service user’s strengths and resilience, and which identify the outcomes that the person wants to achieve for themselves to promote their wellbeing and stay safe. It also involves identifying the strengths and resources in the wider family and community that can build resilience for the person and reduce the risk of harm. Strengths-based safeguarding is underpinned by the six principles of adult safeguarding.
