Edge Training - Consent, the Mental Capacity Act & Medical Treatment

9 June 2017- A one day conference in central London

Consent to treatment and mental capacity are inextricably linked but sometimes this link is poorly understood or applied in practice. Care Quality Commission inspectors are required to ask all healthcare providers about consent and the Mental Capacity Act and the Commission in its most recent 'State of healthcare..' report noted:

'In providers across all sectors, we found variable practice in the implementation of capacity assessments and best interests decision-making.'

This one day conference will provide professionals with essential information and guidance on the legislation and case law surrounding consent and the Mental Capacity Act. It will consider the practical application of this in healthcare settings to enable compliance with the law to protect both staff and patients.
