Course Outline: Mental Capacity Act Refresher: Learning Lessons from Court of Protection Cases delivered by ST Thomas Training
Annual refresher to update your knowledge on the Mental Capacity Act
The training is split into two sessions over consecutive days. The training 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.
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.
Participants should already be familiar with the Mental Capacity Act and the Code of Practice, because this is not an awareness session.
The First Aid at Work (FAW) course will alow delegates to act as a qualified first aider in the work place. This course will give delegates the Level 3 First at Work qualification, accredited by Qualsafe awards.

Safeguarding in a Strength Based Way (All ASC PCC Staff)
Target group: Basic awareness course for all ASC staff.
Aim: A strengths-based approach to adult safeguarding goes beyond a focus on the person’s vulnerability to engaging in conversations which focus on the service user’s strengths and resilience, and which identify the outcomes that the person wants to achieve for themselves to promote their wellbeing and stay safe. It also involves identifying the strengths and resources in the wider family and community that can build resilience for the person and reduce the risk of harm. Strengths-based safeguarding is underpinned by the six principles of adult safeguarding.
