Staff from the Essex Autonomy Project are available to provide consultancy, advice and advanced training on issues around mental capacity, decision-making, risk assessment and CPRD compliance. The project has worked with local authorities, NHS trusts and third-sector groups across the UK. Our consultancy work ranges from contributing to senior staff briefings, providing teaching sessions for advanced students, hosting staff development away-days and leading workshops, seminars and discussion groups.
We work with clients to develop sessions that will practically benefit people, whilst allowing them to reflect on their current practice. Our consultancy is based on our research, but tailored for the specific needs of each client.
Our areas of expertise include:
- Mental capacity legislation
- Support for decision-making
- The ethical and philosophical dilemmas of decision-making
- Patient insight into illness
- The application of the UNCRPD
- Risk and risk-assessment
- Deprivation of Liberty
If the Essex Autonomy Project can help your team please contact us to discuss your requirements.
The Essex Autonomy project was of significant help to our mental health campaign. The expertise and enthusiasm shone through, and this married with the unique philosophical approach was of great help.
