Synopsis: This masterclass will explore the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards and examine the practical implications for health care professionals. There will be a detailed analysis of what constitutes Deprivation of Liberty rather than restriction of liberty.

“We expect more focus on reducing the restraint and restriction of vulnerable people lacking capacity... While there has been an increase in the use of DoLS there is still much more that needs to be done to ensure people are appropriately cared for...this year, CQC is strengthening its approach to monitoring this legislation.” David Behan Chief Executive Care Quality Commission
