Mental Capacity Act And Dols


The Deprivation of Liberties Safeguards (DOLS) are part of the Mental Capacity Act (MCA) and ensure the safety and support of vulnerable adults in care. This online training is designed for staff in the care sector, and raises their awareness of the MCA and DOLS guidelines so that they can remain legally complaint. As well as an understanding of this legislation, delegates will be informed of the process of assessing mental capacity and making informed decisions based on their findings.

We offer significant discounts on all of our e-learning courses when bought in bulk. We can also provide the training in-house, at your workplace or a centre of your choice. Call us today to discuss your options and find out which would be the most cost effective for you.
