Mental Health Care Training – MCA & DOLS

Mental Health Care Training – MCA & DOLS



Mental Health Care Training: MCA & DOLS builds your understanding of the obligations and responsibilities entailed to the Mental Capacity Act (MCA). The in-depth discussion of this act portrays the basic issues of the code of practice for the workers engaged in supportcare, and treatment of adults who cannot make their own decisions and need help in making their life decisions. The Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DOLS) is the act that builds on the MCA. It is introduced to help protect the rights of the person who lacks mental capacity.
