This course acts as an introduction to the Mental capacity act (MCA) and Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DOLS).
It describes in detail the many facets and procedures of the Mental Capacity Act. This includes who the act affects, when it applies, how to assess capacity and the procedures that can be put in place in the home or workplace to ensure best practices are followed and people are treated fairly at all times.
It also introduces the deprivation of liberty safeguards. These safeguards provide a framework for approving the deprivation of liberty for people who lack the capacity to consent to treatment or care in either a hospital or care home setting. DOLS can present a real legal minefield for people with a duty of care for those that lack capacity so an understanding of these is vital for anyone who works in a care environment.
