Webinars from the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) link

 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. We know that those in society most at risk of COVID-19 – older people, and people with existing long-term health conditions – are likely to be over-represented in the group of people whose rights and freedoms are protected by the MCA.

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 we 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.
