Webinars on rights-based care

Publication date: 23 Mar, 2021

The Mental Welfare Commission will be holding two virtual events on rights-based care in April 2021.

The first event on 27 April will cover topics related to the care of people in hospital; the second event on 29 April will focus on people in the community. 

This event is targeted at professionals and clinicians working across the range of health and social care settings, including medical, nursing and social work staff, advocacy workers and independent sector employees.

These two webinars are an opportunity to learn from and watch presentations by medical, nursing and social work officers from the Commission.

Both events will use our good practice guidance, with data from our monitoring reports as well as topics on key issues we encounter through our visiting and on our advice line.
