Feel confident talking to your patients and service users about Advance Decisions to Refuse Treatment (ADRTs), Advance Statements, and Lasting Powers of Attorney for Health & Welfare (LPAs).
Gain a better understanding of the Mental Capacity Act (MCA) and how to positively apply its principles.
Understand how to support people to plan ahead to ensure they get the treatment and care that is right for them.
Our accredited training session ADVANCE CARE PLANNING AND THE MENTAL CAPACITY ACT will help you develop the knowledge and confidence to provide personalised support to those wishing to plan ahead.
“The session was helpful and inspiring as well as practically useful. But most of all the thing that stood out was the way it brought the MCA to life as usually MCA training is really ‘dry’. Today reminded me of why I wanted to be a GP”
- Dr Sharmila Parks
ADVANCE CARE PLANNING AND THE MENTAL CAPACITY ACT
This training explores what it means to have capacity and the law surrounding how decisions are made for people who lack capacity. It also explains the different ways to plan ahead and how these tools work in practice:
Advance Decisions to Refuse Treatment
Lasting Powers of Attorney for Health and Welfare
Understand Advance Decisions to Refuse Treatment, Lasting Powers of Attorney for Health and Welfare, and Advance Statements, the differences and benefits of each and how they work in practice.
Be able to clearly communicate the benefits of advance care planning
Understand the five principles of the Mental Capacity Act 2005
Our CPD-accredited training modules have been developed in consultation with a wide range of health and care professionals, many of whom have reported a lack of confidence talking about the MCA and advance care planning tools with the people they support.
All of our training includes a comprehensive pack of resources as well as ongoing follow-up support through our free information line.
Who is this training for?
This training will benefit anyone seeking to know more about advance care planning in a professional capacity. It will be of particular interest to health, social care and voluntary sector professionals who provide direct support to individuals with long term and life-limiting conditions, as well as those caring for people who lack capacity.
