The Medical Protection Society in partnership with Cambridgeshire County Council and NHS England has just launched a new Mental Capacity Act and Deprivation of Liberty online learning tool specifically for health professionals across England and Wales. This online resource, to which I have contributed, and which draws also upon the 39 Essex Chambers guides, is completely free and will help healthcare professionals understand:
- What the MCA is
- What they need to know
- How it affects them
- How it affects their patients
- How to apply this to their practice.
The modules are designed to support and update your knowledge whenever you need it and are supported with relevant case studies and films from experts in this field. The modules are also supported by a knowledge check which is also certificated
To access the new modules click here (registration is required, but the modules are free).
