Event Details

Consent, the Mental Capacity Act & Medical Treatment
-  a one day conference in central London -

Consent to treatment and mental capacity are inextricably linked but sometimes this link is poorly understood or applied in practice. Care Quality Commission inspectors are required to ask all healthcare providers about consent and the Mental Capacity Act and the Commission in its most recent ‘State of healthcare..’ report noted:

‘In providers across all sectors, we found variable practice in the implementation of capacity assessments and best interests decision-making.’ 

This one day conference will provide professionals with essential information and guidance on the legislation and case law surrounding consent and the Mental Capacity Act. It will consider the practical application of this in healthcare settings to enable compliance with the law to protect both staff and patients. 



Speakers
 
Mr Justice Charles, High Court judge, Vice President of the Court of Protection and President of the Administrative Appeals Chamber in the Upper Tribunal
He presided over one of the most significant medical treatment cases in recent times, Briggs v Briggs & Ors [2016] EWCOP 48, concerning the decision to stop life-sustaining'treatment for a patient. The case was widely reported in the press. He will talk through his judgment and the challenges presented. Mr Justice Charles was also one of the judges in the case about the use of DoLS in Intensive Care Units R (Ferreira) v HM Senior Coroner for Inner South London [2015] EWHC 2990 (Admin) and will talk about deprivation of liberty in the intensive care context. Note: the case was subsequently heard by the Court of Appeal, but the appeal was dismissed.
