Introduction to the Mental Capacity Act and Liberty Protection Safeguards

Introduction to the Mental Capacity Act and Liberty Protection Safeguards

Important information about Mental Capacity and the updated Liberty Protection Safeguards

In 2019, legislation surrounding the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards that was contained in the Mental Capacity Act 2005 was replaced by a new scheme called the Liberty Protection Safeguards. As a result, the course previously available from Red Rock titled ‘Introduction to the Mental Capacity Act and Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards’ has been updated to cover relevant changes under the Liberty Protection Safeguards.

Whilst not planned to be fully implemented until Spring 2020, key information about the changes have been covered with the various new processes referenced (in advance of any new codes of practice that may also help manage the change). As final elements are still to be confirmed, further updates may be made as we draw nearer the implementation date of Spring 2020 (as and if required).

As a result, this programme covers the following:

  • Regulations and Enforcement of Regulations
  • Powers of Attorney and Advocates
  • Liberty Protection Safeguards (LPS)
  • Safeguards and codes of practice
  • Authorisations and applying for LPS authorisation
  • Renewals and Reviews

    In contrast to classes attended regarding child protection, this e-learning course was more in-depth, accessible, and compulsory engagement required due to test . Attended classes can have a passive attendance quality as there is no test, so that you can see people passing the time on their mobile phones!!

    The e-learning course - the flow chart was useful for people like me (A&E junior nurse) as well as the case study. This will influence my practice.
