Daily Coronavirus Update for Nottinghamshire Care Providers - Thursday 28th May 2020

The information below contains current and up to date information for social care providers.

Mental Capacity Act (MCA) training webinar series

The Mental Capacity Act 2005 (MCA) is designed to protect and restore power to individuals who may lack capacity to make certain decisions, at a particular time.

The Department of Health and Social Care has asked SCIE to develop a series of webinars to support you and your team to understand the MCA and gain an understanding of what it means in practice.

Each week SCIE will explore a different aspect of the MCA. Attend one-off sessions to refresh your learning in a particular area or sign up to all five for a complete overview and introduction to the Act.

Maximising the benefits of remote learning, each webinar will provide:

  • a presentation from an expert in the MCA
  • a forum for sharing ideas
  • Q&A opportunities to discuss the MCA-related challenges that you are facing.
