Coroner’s inquests for mental health professionals
This one-day masterclass uses a combination of teaching, group work, and role-play to give professionals greater confidence in writing reports for inquests, giving evidence in court, and understanding how inquests may affect themselves, colleagues, and families.
Coroner's inquests affect many mental health professionals throughout their careers and frequently in the aftermath of a tragic or unexpected death. They can be highly anxiety-provoking for professionals who are called to give evidence and the impact of the death and inquest on family members and care teams can be considerable.
Nonetheless, inquests may provide greater understanding, and sometimes closure, around difficult experiences and learning for professionals involved in the person’s care.
Developed and taught by experts in mental health law from the Maudsley with input from expert lawyers and coroners, this highly interactive course is suitable for healthcare professionals at all levels.
At the end of this course you will be able to:
- Describe the purpose and role of the coroner's court and those involved in an inquest
- Write thorough and effective reports for coroner's inquests
- Give evidence more confidently and effectively in this setting
- Recognise and address potential individual and team challenges that may arise
- Recognise the impact of inquests on individuals and teams.
