Mental capacity



There has never been a more important time for care staff to develop awareness of the mental capacity Act (MCA) and Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS).

The Act also aims to balance an individual’s right to protection from harm if they cannot make decisions to protect themselves.

This training course is designed to give candidates a greater understanding of what capacity is and the principles surrounding capacity.  The course also looks at the deprivation of liberties safeguards and their origins.  This type of course is designed not only as a stand-alone course but also a complement to a Dementia course or a Safeguarding adults course.
