3 1.0 PURPOSE OF THE STRATEGY This document sets out LGSS & Cambridgeshire County Council s (CCC) Mental Capacity Act (MCA) and Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS) Training Offer. The aim is to offer professionals across Cambridgeshire (and beyond) a comprehensive learning and development programme that will enable all individuals to access appropriate training to meet their needs. This document provides information on the courses and support currently available for professionals working for Cambridgeshire County Council, Commissioned Services within Cambridgeshire & Peterborough, health professionals working across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, and professionals operating outside of Cambridgeshire. 2.0 INTRODUCTION As the Governments 2014 Post Legislative Scrutiny Committee and CQC Report on DoLS identified: The evidence presented to us concerns the health and social care sectors principally. In those sectors the prevailing cultures of paternalism (in health) and risk-aversion (in social care) have prevented the Act from becoming widely known or embedded. The empowering ethos has not been delivered. The rights conferred by the Act have not been widely realised. The duties imposed by the Act are not widely followed. A fundamental change of attitudes among professionals is needed in order to move from protection and paternalism to enablement and empowerment. Professionals need to be aware of their responsibilities under the Act, just as families need to be aware of their rights under it (Mental Capacity Act 2005: post-legislative scrutiny). It is these findings along with local and national guidance, case law and the feedback we have received from professionals over the past year that has formed the basis of our MCA and DoLS Training Strategy. 3.0 TRAINING FRAMEWORK This MCA and DOLS training programmes are mostly underpinned by the following resources: Mental Capacity Act, 2005 Code of Practice Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards, 2007 Code of Practice Human Rights Act, 1998 Care Act,

4 The Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2014 Department of Health Knowledge and skills statement for social workers in adult services British and Irish Information Institute (BAILII) Mental Health Law Online Department of Health Social Care Institute for Excellence Resources General Medical Council Resources As a training and development team we strive to support all professionals meet their learning and development needs, in order to ensure that best practice is applied and mistakes others have made are not repeated. Given the varied and complex nature of the MCA and DoLS, all of the courses we provide can be tailored to meet the individual needs of our customers. 4.0 QUALITY ASSURANCE FOR COMMISSIONED SERVICES Many commissioned services in Cambridgeshire have their own training strategies which will identify the level of training their staff need in accordance with their roles / responsibilities with regard to the MCA and DoLS. Naturally, these may vary across organisations and they may develop and deliver their own training tailored to the needs of that organisation. Nationally, there are no specific standards identified for content of either MCA or DoLS training. Nonetheless, we strongly advise that both MCA and DoLS Codes of Practice are used as a benchmark in identifying what content/level may be appropriate across different roles/specialisms/organisations. The recommended standards on Cambridgeshire MCA and DoLS training are laid out in Appendix 1. Where an organisation chooses to commission MCA and DOLS training from an independent training consultant/provider, they must ensure the training course meets the standards identified in Appendix 1 as a minimum. 5.0 FREQUENCY OF MCA AND DOLS TRAINING Currently there is no national guidance in terms of how often professionals should refresh their MCA and DOLS knowledge and repeat the training. Our recommendations in this strategy are based on: The Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2014 Department of Health Knowledge and skills statement for social workers in adult services The Safeguarding Adults: Roles and competences for health care staff With this in mind, we recommend that professionals refresh their knowledge on a 2-yearly basis and attend courses that are appropriate to their professional responsibilities. It has been agreed that Cambridgeshire County Council professionals working in Locality Teams 4

5 should arrange in-house training sessions every year and where this is not possible, attend one of our community based sessions. 6.0 SUGGESTED MCA AND DOLS TRAINING PROGRAMMES The following MCA and DoLS training programmes are designed to guide professionals to the courses they need and have been split up into 4 key areas, which include: Social Care this training programme is for Cambridgeshire County Council professionals who tend to be working in locality teams which consist of social workers, adult support co-ordinators and other supporting professionals. These courses would also be appropriate for social care and mental health professionals working in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Foundation Trust (CPFT) and Drugs and Alcohol Services. It also provides guidance on the training available for Children s Disability Services, and wider Children s teams. Commissioned Services this programme is tailored towards not only CCC internal providers but all of the PVI sector as well. Primary Health This training programme is targeted towards professionals working in or with Cambridgeshire and Peterborough CCG or who are part of the CPFT physical health workforce. Outside Agencies This programme is for all organisations, local authorities and CCG s outside of the scope of LGSS (Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire), who may wish to purchase any of the training we offer. 6.1 SOCIAL CARE Target Audience: Professionals working in Cambridgeshire County Councils Children s / Families & Adults (CFA) locality teams, this may include; Social Workers, Adult Support Co-ordinators (care managers), therapists, nurses, psychiatrists and psychologists. This training is also available for CCC professionals working in CPFT. Training Format: The MCA and DoLS Training and development team will be putting on 8 bespoke training sessions across Cambridgeshire for all Adult Social Care staff based in Locality Teams (CFA). The 8 available sessions will cover both the MCA and DoLS at an Advanced level in 1 day, and all staff will be expected to attend one of these sessions on a yearly basis. 5 sessions tailored to working with young adults will also be made available for professionals working in Children s Disability Services. Professionals working in other Children s services who may be affected by the MCA or DoLS can book shorter tailored 5

6 sessions within their teams on request or send a representative onto the 5 planned sessions. The responsibility for ensuring that all staff working in Adult Services or Children s Disability Services attend these sessions sits with team managers, with overall accountability sitting with the appropriate Head of Service. Training Offer Note: It is strongly recommended that Social Workers (including locums) & Adult Support Co-ordinators (ASC s) looking to complete the Supported Decision and Best Interest Record (ASC 1708) should not do so until they have attended one of the available sessions in the year. Where this needs to be done urgently, professionals can, as a last resort, attend both the MCA and DoLS Advanced courses that we arrange in the community. Courses: The Mental Capacity Act & Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards Advanced Practice Workshop (8 available sessions for Adult Services & 5 for Children s services) Delivery: Community based sessions accessed every year. Additional Sessions (accessed as and when required) Course: Deprivation of Liberty and the Re X Procedures Delivery: Community based session bi-annually. This session can also be arranged in-house. For further information contact or Course: Case Law Discussions and 1:1 support/mentoring Sessions Delivery: The training team can attend Locality Team Meetings or offer office based support sessions, arranged as and when required.

7 Senior Staff The following suggested training programme would be appropriate for all senior staff working in any social care commissioned service setting (including nurses working in these settings), who have responsibilities which may include but are not limited to: Writing care plans Writing risk assessments Completing capacity assessments Documenting best interest decisions Completing the DoLS Form 1 Informing the local authority in community based setting (not registered care homes or nursing homes) of any potential DoL that may need an application made to the Court of Protection.

Interim year: All managers of those supporting these individuals should ensure that staff back up their knowledge, by completing either; e-learning, arranging update sessions or by undertaking further reading in this area on a yearly basis. Purchasing In-house training Many commissioned services should always consider purchasing their MCA/DoLS training inhouse where you have a staff team of 6 or more who would benefit from accessing the training mentioned above. This will offer the following benefit to your service: 7

8 Accessing the courses in house will be more cost effective as the training programme can be reduced from a day and a half in the community to a single days training for senior staff, and for frontline staff you would be able to arrange 2 half day sessions in 1 day, which could potentially mean you will be able to train 40 staff in one day (depending on the size of the training room you can offer). As part of the training offer we will be able to discuss in greater detail the difficulties and issues you face on a day by day basis and make it personalised to the work you do. The Training & Development team are also happy to review any of your current forms used to record consent, capacity and best interests, and will offer advice and guidance on these, and this is all part of the training offer and will not incur any further costs. Breakdown of course charges Course The MCA and DoLS: An Introduction Charges per person when accessing In-house Training Charges community based sessions the cost remains the same whether you access one or two sessions on the one day.

15 8.0 ADDITIONAL LEARNING RESOURCES / WORKSHOPS & SUPPORT In addition to the core training programmes listed above, other MCA and DOLS support and resources are currently being developed and will become available in 2017/2018. All of our resources and/or information on how to obtain them is available on our website or alternatively, contact for further information. E-learning LGSS are currently developing new MCA and DoLS e-learning packages, to be made available in the Autumn of 2017, for all health and social care professionals across Cambridgeshire. We hope that as we move into 2018, we will be able to develop further bespoke e-learning packages, tailored to the needs of different health and social care professionals. The MCA and DoLS online forum In 2016 we introduced an online forum for social care professionals. This is in the process of being revamped and we hope that by the end of 2017 we will be able to launch a bespoke online forum that focuses on sharing best practice, offering regular updates and answering questions from professionals. We plan to have designated forums for all CCC social care professionals and a separate site for commissioned services later in In service case law workshops & team discussions These workshops are tailored to your needs and serve as a targeted method to help you deal with practice dilemmas. Whilst the sessions are not a replacement for face to face training, these can be used to keep you up to date with the latest developments in all relevant MCA and DoLS case law. These sessions are free for all agencies to access and we hope to continue to work closely with colleagues across the whole of the health and social care workforce. 1:1 Mentoring Whilst this free support is available for all agencies to access, priority is given to Cambridgeshire County Council staff and will also depend on our availability. Whilst these sessions are not a replacement for face to face training, they are there to offer additional coaching when dealing with practice issues. Depending on your need, these sessions will either be provided by the LGSS MCA & DoLS Training and Development Team or the CCC MCA & DoLS Team. The MCA/DoLS Quarterly Newsletter For a number of years we have produced a very successful MCA/DoLS Newsletter which serves to update all social care and health professionals on the changing landscape of the MCA/DoLS. 15

16 The LGSS 6 Monthly MCA/DoLS Legal Podcast By Christmas 2017, we will launch a new MCA and DoLS Legal Webinar jointly hosted by the LGSS MCA/DoLS Training & Development Team and the CCC MCA/DoLS Team. The aim of the webinar is to offer all professionals a quick summary of any legal changes and national developments that professionals need to be aware of. This online webinar will be available for participants to engage with on the day or download as a podcast and will be available free of charge for all professionals. 9.0 FROM TRAINING TO BEST PRACTICE The LGSS MCA/DoLS Training & Development Team believes that putting training into practice to improve service delivery is a joint responsibility. This responsibility should be shared equally between the training provider, the participants and their respective managers/employers. Our training courses are designed with the variety of participants learning needs in mind. We will endeavour to check training application forms to ensure that participants are placed on the most appropriate training course suited to their learning needs, role and level of responsibility. However, we also suggest that the participants and/or their managers take a proactive approach to this selection process and enquire about our training courses prior to booking. Our trainers will ensure that the training is relevant, current, engaging and presented in different learning styles to suit the variety of learning needs of participants. Each training session will begin with a brief assessment of participants current knowledge and objectives. These will be informally assessed by the trainer in the course of the training sessions through the use of an activity/case study/quiz etc. Any issues and/or concerns will be reported to their respective managers/employers so that participants receive additional support as required. At the end of the session the trainer will ask participants to complete a course evaluation form. These are used to continuously assess course content and presentation and improve as necessary. The participants responsibilities are to actively engage in the course of the training session through group work and discussions, and to provide the trainer with a completed course evaluation at the end of the session. Any subsequent post-training needs, regarding the MCA and DOLS, can be discussed with the trainer. However, we strongly recommend that participants have broader and more extensive discussions with their managers to explore how their professional development needs could be met. We recommend that managers should undertake knowledge checks with staff subsequent to training and ongoing, as part of the supervision process. We are currently developing a knowledge check form to support managers to proactively support their staff. It is important that participants and their managers discuss whether or not all of the learning objectives have been met and how the new/refreshed knowledge may be implemented in practice. 16
