Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards represents the legislative framework and administrative process that provides authorisation for adults that lack capacity to be deprived of their liberty when being accommodated for either their care or treatment.
This course alongside three others allows you the opportunity to develop the underpinning skills, knowledge and values to prepare for the Best Interest Assessor (BIA) role. They are also aimed at enabling you to develop an ethical understanding of what it is to promote and safeguard the well-being of adults who lack mental capacity.
On completion of this course and the three others that make up the suite, you will be in a strong position to train as a BIA on the course offered by the University and your prior learning will be recognised.
