Aims

People who have learning disabilities and live in registered residential care settings or hospitals and lack mental capacity to consent to this are frequently eligible for Deprivation of liberty Safeguards authorisations. The numbers of people who have learning disabilities requiring assessment by BIAs has greatly increased since the Supreme Court’s judgment on the P v Cheshire West and P and Q v Surrey cases in March 2014, requiring BIAs to be aware of the needs of these individuals. This course aims to assist qualified best interest assessors to make best use of their skills when completing DOLS assessments in learning disability settings, considering the particular challenges of this client group, applying this knowledge to each of the BIAs assessments and reviewing relevant case law.Delegates will have an opportunity to understand different models of learning disability services and to explore how to best undertake BIA assessments with adults who have a variety of learning disabilities.
