Capacity and Self-Determination (Jersey) Law 2016 training for Registered Medical Practitioners
Law At Work
About the CPD course
This course is designed for Registered Medical Practitioners (RMP) who are responsible under the Capacity and Self-Determination (Jersey) Law 2016 (CSDL) (Jerseys equivalent to the Mental Capacity Act 2005) for assessing people who may lack capacity and require a ‘Significant Restriction on their Liberty’ (the equivalent for England and Wales is a Deprivation of Liberty). Under Part 5 of the Capacity and Self-Determination law the RMP will complete the medical assessment to identify if the person has an ‘impairment or disturbance in the functioning of the mind or brain’. This training focuses on the information and knowledge required by the RMP to carry out their legal responsibilities.
