Masterclass: Understanding the interface between the Mental Capacity Act 2005 and the Mental Health Act 1983
Event Type:
Webinar
Date:
06 May 2021
This virtual masterclass will examine the key overlapping provisions of both the MCA 2005 and the MHA 1983 which apply to the deprivation of liberty in individuals in acute and mental health hospitals and in the community. Facilitator Alex Ruck Keene is an experienced barrister, writer and educator. This course will enable relevant professionals in acute hospitals, mental health hospitals and involved in care planning for individuals in the community to navigate the sometimes complex interface between the two pieces of legislation, to reach defensible decisions and to identify how and where to resolve disagreements.
