Capacity, Consent and Confidentiality – 16th March 2022 (£45-£70)
16th March 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm£45 – £70
This training session will be delivered remotely via Microsoft Teams by one of our solicitors.
The training will provide delegates with an understanding of the tests and legislation which govern legal capacity and assessing a child’s ability to consent in Scotland. It will discuss the potential barriers to children being able to consent to treatment or services and the potential conflict between a child’s capacity to make decisions when they differ from those who have Parental Responsibilities and Rights (PRRs) in respect of them. By the end of this session, delegates should also have a good understanding of the child’s right to confidentiality and the limitations of the law in this area.
This course would be beneficial to social workers, teachers, nurses, doctors, therapists, advocacy workers, solicitors, staff at elected representatives offices, and anyone working with children.
