Why should I take this course?
This micro skills course from NHS Health Education England describes deprivation of liberty in health and care settings. It explains how to recognise deprivation of liberty, when to use the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS) to protect someone's rights, and when providers and commissioners must apply directly to the Court of Protection. It outlines the human rights protections that these legal frameworks provide for the person and for the provider and their staff. It explains the practice issues that have been identified with the existing frameworks, with a brief account of proposed legal changes. It discusses case law developments and how best to protect the human rights of people using services within current uncertainties.
Are the programs accredited for continuous professional development (CPD) or continuing medical education (CME)?
Our courses have been developed and are delivered by Talisium's global network of content providers including universities and various professional bodies whose work underpins CPD for healthcare professionals.
Certificates of completion will be available and can be downloaded once a course has been completed. These can be used as evidence of learning for training and CPD purposes. You will need to check with your governing body about CPD standards and requirements.
Unless otherwise stated, certificates issued through Talisium are not qualifications of any formal assessment.
Do I need any prior qualifications or experience?
Our courses and programs have been designed to meet the needs of a broad range of trainees and qualified healthcare professionals. For most courses, we do not ask that you hold certain qualifications or meet certain criteria.
Some courses are aligned to specialist medical curricula so there is a certain level of medical knowledge required in these cases. On the whole, however, the courses and programs are accessible to a broad audience of learners.
