Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS)
NB: the existing DoLS system will continue to operate until at least September 2021. It is planned to overlap with the new system, the Liberty Protection Safeguards, from October 2020.
In the meantime, the DoLS must continue to be used, and therefore we will continue to deliver DoLS training.
To give participants an overall understanding of how the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (“DoLS”) apply to their day-to-day work settings.
Anyone working in a health or social care setting. We strongly recommend the attendance of senior staff, rather than junior ones. It would also make sense for all participants to have a good understanding of the Mental Capacity Act 2005 prior to attending the DoLS training.
Venue & duration
Your own training room. A full day is certainly best. We could squeeze the training into a half day if you wish, but you would have to tell us what to cover, and what to leave out.
