Adult Social Care - Lessons Learned from 2020 & Horizon Scanning
Social care has been pushed to the front of public consciousness over the course of the pandemic so far.
This is against the backdrop of the Care Act 2014 having implemented changes to care and support five years ago, and the Mental Capacity Act 2005 being the subject of an imminent review in the form of the liberty protection safeguards.
This new virtual classroom seminar is aimed at those practising in the area of community care, where the Care Act and Mental Capacity Act and other welfare schemes intersect.
It will assess how the statutory schemes have performed generally, and particularly when stress-tested by the pandemic, and consider what developments are likely in the future in these areas.
What You Will Learn

- Care and support - recent case law and legislation
