Training - Awareness of DoLS Training


The Mental Capacity Act allows restraint and restrictions to be used – but only if they are in a person's best interests. Extra safeguards are needed if the restrictions and restraint used will deprive a person of their liberty. These are called the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards. This training course aimed at increasing knowledge of frontline professionals of DoLS.

The course will include:

  • Policies and procedures relating to Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards,
  • An overview of case law,
  • The role of the Managing Authority and Supervisory body;
  • Assessment and authorisation processes;
  • Application of conditions;
  • Reporting;
  • Challenging, and the role of the IMCA during the assessment process.
