Delirium Ready - Delirium Awareness and Management

5 out of 5 (1 rating)

Delirium in older adults often goes unrecognised by health care professionals and can be poorly managed. People with Dementia have higher risk of developing delirium. We have produced this video to raise the awareness of Delirium Superimposed Dementia and also signposted ways of managing it using a tool we developed (delirium wheel) that can be used in care home, hospital or community settings  Length: 4 min. Please also see our #icanpreventdelirium video for more on delirium.
