Below is a copy of the event recording, contact details of the speaker and an FAQ with further information from the session.

Understanding mental capacity and the arrangements required when someone is deprived of their liberty (Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards) in a registered care or nursing home setting is key to ensuring you limit your exposure in respect of unlawful deprivations of liberty. There are further difficulties if the resident is in a supported living environment. The position for care providers can also be challenging if the resident is displaying disruptive behaviour to other residents, families, and staff.

The area of mental capacity law and deprivation of liberty is fast moving and complex.
