Health and social care practitioners must navigate a complex ethical and legal environment which demands both respect for client autonomy and the protection of vulnerable persons. The pandemic adds additional layers of complexity; what is the relationship between the Mental Capacity Act and Public Health Law? To what extent are the interests of the individual bound up with the interests of others? And what should be considered a proportionate response to the risks posed by the coronavirus?
Essex Autonomy Project Workforce Training provides advanced on-site training on current research, legal developments and the ethical issues surrounding the idea of autonomy in care contexts. Current modules include: “Respecting Human Rights in Locked-Down Care Homes” and “Assessing Necessity and Proportionality when Rights are Restricted”.
What do the training days include?
Each workplace training session includes legal briefings, overview of the latest research and collaborative exploration of case study material. Currently, all training sessions are being held on Zoom, with breakout rooms used to facilitate discussion. Depending on your preferences, training may be held on one day, or may take place over several days. We hope to resume onsite workforce training soon.
Each training day is designed to be an interactive and informative forum for exploring the ethical challenges that arise in professional practice. Sessions can contribute to CPD portfolios and can be tailored to fit local training and development requirements.
How many people can attend?
We are able to deliver training to groups of up to 200 participants. However, we encourage the use of smaller groups in order to facilitate discussion.
Who leads the training?
Sessions are led by teaching and research staff from the Essex Autonomy Project.

The Essex Autonomy Project sessions I have attended have been extremely enlightening, the presentations have been excellent and it’s been a fantastic opportunity to collaborate and exchange ideas with other participants. It’s been one of the most thought-provoking and reflective sessions I have attended in recent times.
