- Open Courses - Mental Capacity Act & Safeguarding Adults
Mental Capacity Act & Safeguarding Adults open courses 2017-18
Four great topics. Eight convenient locations across England and Wales. Only £50.00 plus VAT per person. Aimed at experienced health or social care professionals who already have a good understanding of the Mental Capacity Act and/or Safeguarding Adults.
Every training session will be fully interactive, so participants will be encouraged to ask questions, debate the issues and (where appropriate) share their own experiences. Each participant will receive a full handout pack and a certificate of attendance.
The Topics (Each is a full day session 9.30am - 4.30pm)
A one-day session to enable practitioners, in a supportive, non blaming environment, to understand the key themes emerging from Safeguarding Adults Reviews (in Wales these are called Safeguarding Adults Practice Reviews). Participants will also reflect on what the learning means for their practice with service users and their communication and joint working with staff of partner agencies. This session will look at a selection of Reviews from across England and Wales, as well as some Reviews which are more local to the venue in which the training is taking place.
A one-day training session to give participants an overall understanding of how the Mental Capacity Act 2005 applies to issues of sexual activities. For example when a service user who has a learning disability, or dementia, wants to have a sexual relationship. Or perhaps when one half of a couple wants to continue a sexual relationship even though his/her spouse may no longer have the capacity to consent to that relationship.
A one-day session to enable managers in the 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.
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. So this one-day session 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.
