MCA and DOLS Training
About this course
The primary purpose of the Mental Capacity Act is to promote and safeguard decision-making within a legal framework. The Liberty Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DOLS) is the procedure prescribed in law when it is necessary to deprive of their liberty a resident or patient who lacks the capacity to consent to their care and treatment in order to keep them safe from harm.
This course will help delegates understand the key principles of the MCA, the factors affecting mental capacity, and how to test whether an individual can be deemed to have mental capacity. It explores the concepts of consent and “best interests.” Delegates will learn when and how the Liberty Protection Safeguards apply and what the requirements are for LPS to be authorised.
