Capacity & Consent (Frontline Staff, Middle & Senior Managers)

Event on: 2017-October 19th 1:00 AM - 1:00 AM

Trainer: Law Centre NI

With the imminent Mental Capacity Act, this course aims to equip learners to examine the law governing decision-making on behalf of adults who have impaired decision-making capacity and who cannot consent to treatment, or to the provision of social care services on their own behalf.

By the end of the course learners will:

  • understand the law governing consent and capacity
  • understand how an adult’s mental capacity to make a social care decision is assessed
  • understand the legal rules which govern decision making on behalf of adults without capacity in relation to social care and financial matters
  • understand the respective roles and responsibilities of informal carers and care providers/professionals in the provision of services to adults without capacity
  • understand how disputes between carers and care providers/professionals, which concern service provision to an adult without capacity can be resolved.
