This advanced master class is dedicated to Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards and the manager's responsibilities. For example delegates will be able to explore the difference between deprivation of liberty and restriction of liberty; will learn how to apply for an authorisation of Deprivation of Liberty step by step and how to manage the ongoing review of a Deprivation of Liberty.
Numbers are restricted to ensure plenty of opportunity for delegates to raise issues from their own practice and to relate their learning to their own experiences. The day will be interactive and will include case studies, applied learning, discussion and much more.
The course is facilitated by Andrea Allison who has thirty years of experience in Health and Social Care delivery including ten years of managing a service for adults with a learning disability. Andrea has a HND in Managing Care Services and is a qualified and experienced trainer and facilitator.
The Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DOLs) came into effect in April 2009 following the passing of the Mental Health Act 2007. This places a legal obligation on residential and nursing homes and hospitals to ensure that the DOLs standards are upheld. Managers of residential and nursing homes or their deputies and ward managers in hospitals who care for people who may lack mental capacity to make decisions concerning their care need a thorough working knowledge of the DOLs in order to fulfil these obligations. This lively interactive master class will give a step by step guide to DOLs and opportunities to apply this knowledge to their own area of practice. Delegates will come away with the tools and knowledge to navigate DOLs with confidence.
On completion of the master class delegates will be able to:-
- List the 5 principles of the Mental Capacity Act 2005 and explain the terms capacity,best interest decision making, advance decisions, lasting powers of attorney ICMA's and restraint.
- Define the key terms in relation to deprivation of liberty safeguards (DOLS).
- Explain the difference between restrictions of liberty and deprivation of liberty.
- Demonstrate knowledge of what Managing Authorities should consider before applying for 'Authorisation' of Deprivation of Liberty.
