Part 3: Developing good practice

The BIA Practice Handbook remains the only textbook that focuses directly on the BIA role within the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards. It is considered to be the definitive introduction to Best Interests Assessor practice, and is acknowledged to be a valuable resource for both students and practitioners as it contains detailed knowledge and support for ethical decision making in practice. The latest edition has been updated to take into account recent legislative changes, including the Mental Capacity Amendment Act 2019, recent case law, plus the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on BIA practice.
