AMP Update Training – Multi-Specialty

 

 Course aim

The aim of the workshop is to consider how the Mental Health Act and other related legislation, should be applied in support of the care and treatment of people living in Scotland, with mental disorder.

 

Learning outcomes

On completion of this course, participants will…

  • Be reminded of the breadth of applicable legislation
  • Through cases/discussion, consider appropriate application of the legislation 
  • Consider the challenges of ensuring that detention or deprivation of liberty is lawful

 

Pre-course work

One of the key learning opportunities in this course will be from the discussion of challenging cases.  As part of your joining instructions, you will receive a template that we will ask you to complete and bring with you on the day where you will detail a complex case that you have recently been involved in.  It is essential that you bring this on the day.

 

Target audience

This course is aimed at existing AMPs who are required to complete Update Training every five years.

The Multi-Specialty course may be attended by an AMP from any specialty.

We would however encourage any AMPs who specialise in CAMHS or Forensics to attend Update training specific to that specialty.

This training requires to be completed in good time to maintain your AMP status.  Due to limited availability, we strongly recommend that existing AMPs complete their training well in advance of the anniversary of their AMP status.
