Ten years of the Mental Capacity Act; capturing experience

Speaker(s): Jill Manthorpe Professor of Social Work Director of the Social Care Workforce Research Unit Kings College London

Jill Manthorpe is Professor of Social Work at King's College London, Director of the Social Care Workforce Research Unit and NIHR Senior Investigator Emeritus. She is involved in advisory work for the Department of Health on several subjects and works closely with several social care employers to link research and practice.

We are delighted to welcome Jill to Making Research Count (York). This seminar is in direct response to requests from delegates at previous MRC York events, particularly the event we ran in September 2014 in partnership with the regional hospice network in Yorkshire and Humber. Jill has published widely on the Mental Capacity Act, dementia, palliative care and more, and has her finger on the pulse of social work practice.

Bursaries are available for students, staff and service users, as well as for volunteers from voluntary groups, community groups and charities; please ask for details.
