Consent to Treatment in Mental Health Law E-Learning

Friday, July 13th, 2012

Kwango is pleased to announce the launch of its Consent to Treatment in Mental Health Law E-Learning course. It is the latest addition to our other popular Adult Services and Health Care E-Learning Courses.

To meet CQC standards, our Consent to Treatment in Mental Health Law E-Learning Course provides an effective way of ensuring that large numbers of learners have a clear awareness of Consent both in hospitals and in the community.

Our course is designed to help practitioners in Health, Social Care and other Statutory Agencies and the Private, Voluntary and Independent Sectors in a number of ways. These include understanding the background to Consent to Treatment; the principles underpinning Consent to Treatment in Mental Health Law; legislation impacting on Consent to Treatment in Mental Health Law and examples of good and bad practice in relation to Consent to Treatment.

Guy Davis, Strategic Lead on Mental Health Law, East London NHS Trust; Chair of the former Institute of Mental Health Practitioners and Chair of the an on-line Mental Health Law Discussion Group comments:
‘East London NHS Trust commissioned Consent to Treatment E-Learning from Kwango. My colleague, Jo Turner and I helped with developing the content plus featured in photo-animated interviews with former patients and ourselves. The programme is very interactive and we are happy to recommend it as a pre-learner ahead of training, a refresher following training or as awareness raising for staff unable to attend training’.

Our high quality course contains case studies and quizzes to further engage learners. As with all our courses, it can be customised for each individual organisation and allows electronic tracking of user and usage. It can also be accessed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week which gives learners both the advantage and flexibility of completing the course at their own pace and to suit their work schedule.
