Approved Clinician Refresher Course - Online

St Andrews Hospital, Northampton, NN1 5DG

Friday 28 January 2022 – 14:00-17:00

 

This is an online refresher course suitable for qualified professionals who already have Approved Clinician status under Section 12 of the Mental Health Act and are due for renewal in the next 12 months. This course automatically covers Section 12(2) approval, so there is no need for doctors to attend a separate course for Section 12 renewal.

The online course consists of 4.5 hours of self-directed e-learning which will be shared with the candidates a week in advance followed by three hours of live webinars on 28.01.2022. The live webinar sessions are led by senior members of the St Andrew’s Mental Health Law Steering Group. The course uses real and complex case studies, interactive quizzes, mini-lectures, small-group break-out sessions and legal updates to ensure delegates are fully equipped to continue working as Approved Clinicians.

Please note that this course is just part of the Approved Clinician renewal process. The course is recognised nationally but the process varies according to your location.

  • The roles and responsibilities of an Approved Clinician
