Updated Mental Capacity Act elearning now available

The Mental Capacity Act elearning programme has been updated for all health and care staff who work with people lacking mental capacity.

The resource has been revised and updated in line with recent case law and user feedback; and includes essential revisions to materials about the Liberty Protection Safeguards.

There are 12 sessions in the programme which cover a range of topics including best interests, restraint, adult safeguarding and deprivation of liberty. It is aimed at all health and care professionals who work with people aged 16 and over, who might lack mental capacity to make essential decisions at the time these decisions need making.

Since it was developed in 2019 the programme has been launched 870,000 times and has more than 95,000 active users across the health and social care sectors.

For more information and to access the newly updated elearning, please visit the Mental Capacity Act programme page.
