Working with the complexity under the MCA Training

Working with the complexity under the MCA

Thurrock Safeguarding Adults Board are delighted to announce three new dates of the above training. This training is for anyone wanting an in-depth session looking at some of the complexities of the MCA. Thurrock Council staff and contractors are suitable for this training. 

There is an expectation that participants will have completed MCA basic awareness training in advance of this one.

The learning Outcomes from this training are:

  • Understand the complex issues of consent and how to proceed in an accountable, safe, and appropriate manner if meaningful consent cannot be obtained.
  • Formulate an accurate question for the basis of the MCA Assessment and be able to decide if there is more than one question/assessment required.
  • Confidently assess the responses given by customers to inform a decision on whether they have capacity for that decision, including assessing fluctuating capacity.
  • Decide who is the most appropriate decision-maker for each decision to be made and ensure the response is proportionate to the decision.
  • Understand the importance of recording all information appropriately and in line with the code of practice and Act.
