This conference focuses the important issue of improving adult safeguarding practice in a hospital setting. Through national developments and practical case studies the conference will provide you with an essential guide to improving adult safeguarding in your service. The conference will discuss the implementation of the new 2018 intercollegiate guidance ‘Adult Safeguarding: Roles and Competencies for Healthcare Staff’ supporting you to ensure competence in practice, and will update delegates on essential legal developments in adult safeguarding including the implications of the Liberty Protection Safeguards and the 2018 Mental Capacity Amendment Bill which have major implications for healthcare. The Mental Capacity (Amendment) Bill was introduced to the House of Lords on Tuesday 3 July and seeks to replace the current system known as ‘Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards’ (DoLs), the new system will allow the NHS, rather than local authorities, to make decisions about their patients, allowing a more efficient and clearly accountable process (DH2018).
