Place of publication:

This document describes the six areas of capability Best Interest Assessors (working within the Deprivation of Liberty Process) need to practise effectively within the role. They reflect and build on the requirements of the regulations in relation to the capabilities needed. The six areas are: the ability to apply in practice, and maintain knowledge of, relevant legal and policy frameworks; the ability to work in a manner congruent with the presumption of capacity; the ability to take all practical steps to help someone to make a decision; the ability to balance a person’s right to autonomy and self-determination with their right to safety, and respond proportionately; the ability to make informed, independent best interest decisions within the context of a Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS) assessment; and the ability to effectively assess risk in complex situations, and use analysis to make proportionate decisions.

Publication year:

Pagination:

Place of publication:
London

This paper examines how social work can play a role in improving adult mental health services and achieve better service user, family and community outcomes. It proposes five key areas of practice that should frame the deployment and development of social workers in adult mental health. Under each heading specialist capabilities can be developed which are further described in the main document. The five key areas are: enabling citizens to access the statutory social care and social work services and advice to which they are entitled, discharging the legal duties and promoting the personalised social care ethos of the local authority; promoting recovery and social inclusion with individuals and families; intervening and showing professional leadership and skill in situations characterised by high levels of social, family and interpersonal complexity, risk and ambiguity; working co-productively and innovatively with local communities to support community capacity, personal and family resilience, earlier intervention and active citizenship; and leading the Approved Mental Health Professional workforce.

Author:
KEVILLE Helen
Publisher:
College of Social Work
Publication year:
2015
Pagination:

Place of publication:
London

Incorporating the views of practitioners and stakeholders across the country, this review considers what updates are required to ensure the Professional Capabilities Framework reflects the changing context and contemporary practice needs. The report makes a series of recommendations, including: that PCF level descriptors should be enhanced and made a focal point for signposting and integration; that The domain of professional leadership is reviewed so that it encompasses a broader and more up to date definition of leadership, and establishes a coherent relationship with the Knowledge and Skills Statements for practice leaders and practice supervisors; that joint statements are developed to explain priorities and relationships between the PCF and other guidance, including the Knowledge and Skills Statement for Child and Family social work, the Knowledge and Skills Statement for social workers in Adults Services and the Health and Care Professions Council Standards of Proficiency for Social Workers in England; and that visual presentation of the PCF is improved, and the refreshed version is disseminated widely.

The Impact on AMHP practice and service delivery by the Supreme Court Judgment on deprivation of liberty: P v Cheshire West and P & Q v Surrey County Council

The focus of this report is on the MHA and its interface with the MCA, Deprivation of Liberty and the implications of the Supreme Court judgment (P v Cheshire West and Chester Council and P and Q v Surrey County Council [2014] UKSC 19). The latter has made it clearer and easier for providers and decision makers to identify where a person is being deprived of their liberty but has also led to a considerable increase in the numbers of people in England and Wales who are considered to be deprived of their liberty for the purposes of receiving care and treatment. The paper summarises the findings from a survey on the court judgment impacted on AMHP practice and service delivery. They show that there has been significant impact on AMHPs and service providers, but the situation appears to be more challenging for certain local authorities where a large proportion of their Best Interests Assessors for DoLS are drawn from the AMHP service. Landmark changes impacting AMHP practice and the local authorities on behalf of which the professionals act have been made as result of the Cheshire West judgement but there remain barriers and challenges in fully implementing these changes arising from the complex and bureaucratic DoLS framework. The Law Commission has been tasked to look for a framework that is simpler, while still protecting the rights of vulnerable people with mental health problems and those who lack capacity, with final report and draft legislation due to be published in summer 2017.

The key domains covered include: professionalism, values and ethics, diversity, social justice and economic rights, knowledge, critical reflection, skills and interventions, contexts and organisations, and leadership.
