Mental Capacity Act: Learning Lessons from Court of Protection cases
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 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.
The content can be updated each year, so this session can be used as an annual refresher for experienced practitioners.
Experienced professionals in any health or social care setting (eg hospitals, social work teams, residential or community care, GP surgeries etc). Participants should already be very familiar with the Mental Capacity Act and the Code of Practice, because this is not an awareness session.
