The Care Sector & Inquests - An Introduction to Law, Practice & Procedure
The care sector is a diverse and growing sector.
National providers of residential nursing care and small facilitators of localised sheltered accommodation are involved in the care of elderly populations as well as other vulnerable individuals. Local authorities also have statutory safeguarding and oversight duties within the sector.
This new course will guide you through the circumstances in which such organisations might be required to navigate the coronial and inquest system. Or when might an organisation seek to be involved?
The course will also consider how internal investigations are relevant and what may be explored at an inquest about systems previously or currently in place.
What You Will Learn
This course will cover the following:
- The importance of active engagement with the coronial process following the reporting of a death of a resident and the opening of a coroner’s investigation
- The relevance of internal investigations/referrals to outside organisations
- When Article 2 and/or a jury may be engaged in an inquest concerning the death of a person ordinarily living in residential care
- The level/degree of coronial scrutiny at inquest - from seemingly straight-forward facts to the most complex of circumstances
- Practical skills in avoiding pitfalls and ensuring effective participation before, during and after an inquest hearing
