Anita is a qualified social worker and Best Interests Assessor for Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (Dols).  Until recently she was employed by Lancashire County Council as Mental Capacity Act Co-ordinator.  In this role, Anita worked closely with social care, health and provider staff to implement and enhance MCA practice. Anita is now retired but remains committed to supporting good practice relating to MCA and deprivation of liberty.  As well as offering sessions to One Stop Social, she also trains for Lancashire County Council and teaches at Uclan on the Dols BIA courses, as well as working with colleagues supporting young people. 

This workshop will look at the use of Covert Medication – what it is; the legal framework; who should be involved in the decision;  how and when it should be reviewed and what should be recorded.

We will discuss the recently updated Lancashire protocol for Covert medication.

Information will be provided by presentation, handouts, case study group work and question and answers throughout the session.

 N.B. Networking Partnership Members get 20% discount on this workshop.
