Mental Capacity Act and Deprivation of Liberty

The Medical Protection Society in partnership with Cambridgeshire County Council and NHS England are pleased to announce the launch of a new Mental Capacity Act and Deprivation of Liberty online learning tool specifically for health professionals across England and Wales. This online resource is completely FREE and will help healthcare professionals understand:

  • What the MCA is
  • What they need to know
  • How it affects them
  • How it affects their patients
  • How to apply this to their practice

The modules are designed to support and update your knowledge whenever you need it and are supported with relevant case studies and films from experts in this field.

The modules are also supported by a knowledge check which is also certificated. We would also highlight that the knowledge check is not a replacement for face to face training which is offered by many providers including MPS.
