Masterclass: Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards
Wednesday 4 May 2016
Hallam Conference Centre, London
“The use of DoLS in hospitals and care homes continues to vary. For example, we have found variation in staff training and understanding of DoLS and providers’ policies about DoLS. Overall, while we have found examples of providers meeting requirements, there are also clear examples of poor practice..” Care quality Commission, October 2015
This masterclass will explore the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards and examine the practical implications for health care professionals. There will be a detailed analysis of what constitutes Deprivation of Liberty rather than restriction of liberty.
Delegates will have the opportunity to raise issues and concerns specific to their own practice. The course will be run by Kate Hill, a Mental Healthcare lawyer, and will be case study led.
