About the Event
The Brain Injury Social Work Group (BISWG) in association with the University of Essex and British Psychological Society (Division of Neuropsychology) are pleased to announce a conference on practice related to complex cases linked to the Mental Capacity Act (MCA).
This conference will bring together multiple professional perspectives from Social Work, Service Users, Clinical Psychologists & Neuropsychologists, Psychiatry and the legal profession.
The aim is to understand the differing professional perspectives related to MCA practice, how these vary and at times might conflict, and to debate these approaches to inform future practice.
The Melanie George Memorial Conference - Complex decision-making in mental capacity practice is to be held on Friday 29th April in London and also online. The event is to be chaired by Denzil Lush, former Master and Senior Judge of the Court of Protection.
All places are being offered free of charge so we do ask that you commit to attending. Should you fail to attend (without giving us prior notice of cancellation) we may ask for you to pay an administration fee. By submitting your booking you are agreeing to these terms.
Dr Melanie George
This unique event is being held in honour of Dr Melanie George who devoted much of her professional life as a neuropsychologist to work with other health and social care professions in addressing the complexities posed for practice related to the Mental Capacity Act.
