Liberty Protection Safeguards: Briefing Session

***LIMITED AVAILABILITY***

The Mental Capacity (Amendment) Bill was passed by Parliament on 24th April 2019. The purpose of the Bill is to abolish the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS) and to replace them with a completely new system, the Liberty Protection Safeguards (LPS).

In the coming weeks an implementation date for the LPS will be agreed. The most likely date is Autumn 2020. 

On that basis we are organising a series of Briefing Sessions in various locations around England and Wales, to be delivered by Tim Spencer-Lane. Tim is a lawyer with the Law Commission who headed their review of the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards in 2015-17. The Law Commission's full report, published in March 2017, recommended abolishing the DoLS and bringing in the new system of LPS. Recently Tim has been seconded to the Department of Health & Social Care where he has worked on the Liberty Protection Safeguards.

Many of you will have attended one of the Briefing Sessions which Tim delivered for us in the Summer of 2017. The sessions in 2019 will follow a similar format (ie morning and afternoon sessions at each venue) where Tim will outline in detail how the new system is intended to work. And once again there will be plenty of opportunities for questions and clarifications. 

Please note: the LPS will apply from age 16, and in all settings (residential, hospital, community etc). The Bill as passed by Parliament is based on the Law Commission's original proposals of March 2017, but those proposals have been significantly amended along the way.


Price Information

Places are £60.00 plus VAT per person. You can pay by Paypal, credit/debit card, internet banking or cheque. Or if you prefer we can send you an invoice - but please note in this case that your place is not confirmed until we receive full payment (payment terms are 14 days from date of invoice). The system will automatically you a record of your booking within a few minutes.

Learning Lessons from Safeguarding Adults Reviews

PLEASE NOTE - THE CONTENT OF THIS SESSION CHANGES COMPLETELY FROM YEAR TO YEAR, TO REFLECT NEW CASES AND DIFFERENT PRIORITIES. THE NEW YEAR STARTS ON 1ST APRIL. THE CONTENT OF THE SESSIONS FROM 1ST APRIL 2019 - 31ST MARCH 2020 WILL BE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT TO WHAT WAS COVERED BETWEEN 1ST APRIL 2018 AND 31ST MARCH 2019.

AIM

A one-day session to enable practitioners, in supportive, non blaming environment, to understand the key themes emerging from Safeguarding Adults Reviews. Delegates will also reflect on what the learning means for their practice with service users and their communication and joint working with staff for our partner agencies.

Safeguarding Adults Reviews are conducted when a service user has died or experienced serious harm and there are concerns about how agencies have worked together to safeguard the person. Often in these cases staff have worked diligently and with great care and concern for the service use but with the benefit of hindsight an SAR can shine a light on how staff may have been caught up in complex inter agency or family dynamics which made it difficult to accurately assess the risks to the service user or hear the service user's voice.

The course will consider our Norfolk SARs and learning emerging nationally throughout the year.

TARGET GROUP

Assistant practitioners, social workers, practice consultants, team managers, and optional for Heads of Service/Heads of Operations and Assistant Directors. Also other experienced staff in health & social care organisations throughout the county of Norfolk.

LEARNING OUTCOMES: BY THE END OF THIS SESSION PARTICIPANTS SHOULD:

  • understand the themes emerging from SARs and what it means for developing individual practice
  • have analysed a section of an anonymised SAR with a view to considering the multi agency context and the risks to the service user
  • understand the concept of static and dynamic risks and the protective / mitigating factors within a person’s life and how to balance them
  • have clarified best practice in information sharing and the multi agency dynamics which can operate to as a barrier to gathering information
  • know how to use supervision effectively to share and analyse risk
  • understand the inter relationship between the MCA and safeguarding work and how the assumption of capacity and the concept of ‘Lifestyle choice’ can detract from understanding the risk of harm
  • know how the ‘Rule of Optimism’ can operate when there are serious risks to service users and understand how to recognise this

HOW TO BOOK ON ONE OF THESE SESSIONS

Employees of organisations other than Norfolk County Council within the county of Norfolk should complete the booking form and send it to St Thomas Training by email or post. 


Price Information
