The 2nd edition of my little book is due to hit the shelves on 6th April - and if you want to claim a 20% discount follow the links from the DBC publication page after the launch date. If you are keen and want to order something ahead of time, you can also pre-order via Amazon.
This edition, I've spent time thinking and writing about how the Supreme Court Judgement needs to be reflected in AMHP practice - basically, if you think coming into hospital will amount to a deprivation of the person's liberty, you need to have their informed consent or another source of legal authority.
I've also made sure the new code of practice and reference guide is well referenced, and provided some guidance about how exactly to decide whether to assess in someone's home or remove that person to a place of safety (as the code suggests we should be doing more often).
I can't promise more beds or that the ambulance will arrive any more quickly - but who knows?
We would like to hear from any employers who know of such candidates, or any individual candidates who have now left the employ of the organisation where they completed their ASYE and who would like to receive a certificate. Subject to verification from the employing organisation that the certificate is warranted, we will do our best to ensure that all those who should expect their certificate of successful completion are able to receive one.
In order to set this process in motion, you should contact DBC by emailing email@example.com giving details of the employing organisation, candidate name and contact details (where known) and the date of completion of ASYE.
