Mental Capacity: the abuse of trust in practice


At this webinar our international panel of speakers will discuss the warning signs in relation to the abuse of trust in practice and how to safeguard against it. The panel will review the legal frameworks and procedures in place in their respective jurisdictions, with focus on best-practice in this area for both clients and professional practice. The legal, policy and regulatory issues that arise in this context will also be discussed, as well as how they could be improved or expanded upon.

This webinar will actively consider how STEP members are presented as being uniquely placed to address these topical issues and to explore actions and training needs to contribute to the solution.

This webinar is part of STEP's Thought Leadership Series.
