An interesting and interactive way of learning about legislation affecting the lives of older people, through practical case studies and participative exercises

This course will give you an overview of legislation in health and social care relevant to decision making for older people. It will set out the rules and illustrate how they can be challenged constructively by advocates to encourage, and sometimes force, local authorities and NHS bodies to make fair and lawful decisions.
