Mental Capacity Act and Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards


Course overview

This course has been developed to provide learners with an understanding of the Mental Capacity Act and Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards. It will help challenge staff in the way they think around what could be seen as a deprivation of liberty and making sure there are adequate safeguards in place. This will support them to inform and involve an individual they support to make decisions about their life. This course will explore how this act affects them and their practice and the individuals that they support.

This course has been developed and mapped to: The Mental Capacity Act 2005, The Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards 2009, and the following QCF units: Principles of Safeguarding and Protection in Health and Social Care, Introduction to Duty of Care in Health, Social Care or Children’s and Young People’s Settings, Principles for Implementing Duty of Care in Health, Social Care or Children’s and Young People’s Settings.
