Webinar: MCA/Liberty Protection Safeguards and the Revised Code of Practice – What You Need to Know Now

17 November @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

The transition from Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS) to Liberty Protection Safeguards (LPS) becomes effective on 1st April 2022. Whilst the implications are not profound for social care providers, there are some important pieces of detail, changes of emphasis, and new arrangements that services will have to be aware of, prepare for and comply with.

At the same time, a new Code of Practice covering both the Mental Capacity Act and LPS will be introduced. This should introduce more detail on fluctuating capacity and persistent unwise decisions amongst other things. It is hoped that this will be available in draft/consultation form in Autumn 2021, and should give providers a strong steer on what to expect.

This one-hour webinar presented by our Lead Trainer Rod Landman will cover:

  • What you need to know: the essentials
  • Actions: preparing for LPS
  • Partnerships and networking: who you need to talk to
  • Workforce development: preparing your staff

Participants can submit question before the event and there will also be a chance to ask questions during the webinar.
