Code: PCC/21/322 Mental Capacity Act Refresher: Learning Lessons from Court of Protection Cases (Virtual Online)

Delegates must attend both sessions to complete the course - please add both dates into your calendar.

 

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. 

 

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.

Code: PCC/20/1293 Conflict Management

In some areas of your work you may have to deal with really difficult people, perhaps other members of staff or members of the public and you are not sure how to handle the situation you find yourself in, or lack the confidence to try and resolve a situation before it escalates.
Conflict management training will help you to feel more confident when placed in such a situation. Although not every conflict has an easy-to-achieve resolution, most do, it's just that people are more adept at avoiding conflict than seeing what needs to be done to resolve it.
