This project builds on key points from face-to-face education to develop an online educational tool to help patient advocates, advisers, and health/care professionals to use human rights to support patients, securing their rights and protecting them from neglect or abuse and unfair treatment. Whilst people can use the tool to self-advocate, the target will be the many organisations/agencies charged with supporting patients, particularly those with mental health/capacity issues. This includes people living with dementia, autism and/or learning disabilities. Our interactive tool will enable patients/advocates/health workers to identify whether a person’s rights may be at issue and then take them through a series of practical steps and tools to resolve this pre-litigation (e.g. sample letters and worked examples).
