Following on from our first webinar on the same topic (which can be watched here: https://restraintreductionnetwork.org/3646-2/), this webinar will seek to discuss further the key themes and questions that were asked in the first webinar.
With the roll-out of the national COVID-19 vaccination programme, there is now hope of a way out of the pandemic and its associated social restrictions; but for those who care for and support people with a learning disability, autistic people and people with mental health conditions, this may require some quick thinking about some difficult issues.
There is growing concern for people who lack capacity to make most, if not all, decisions about accessing health interventions. There is concern amongst families and practitioners that without consideration and careful planning, some people may be at risk of delayed or denied access to vaccines.
In our forthcoming webinar we propose to further discuss and explore key issues, with the aim of providing clarity as to how this population’s best interests can best be served. The key issues we will explore include but are not limited to:
- Best interest judgments
- Mental Capacity
- Restrictive practices, human rights, and least restrictive approaches.
Please submit your questions in the comments/ questions section of the registration form.
