Delirium and dementia

Programme summary

Delirium is a serious condition associated with poor outcomes particularly for people with dementia. Delirium creates problems for care professionals because it is complex to diagnose and treatment is dependent upon the underlying cause. Identification of acute decline in cognition and other mental functions is challenging, as it is often a consequence of multiple interacting factors, both acute and chronic. This learning programme will help professionals become familiar with the main features of delirium; risk factors; management strategies and prevention in order to provide a consistently high standard of care.

Who is this programme for

  • Health Care Support Workers
  • Newly Qualified Staff
  • All non-medical/nursing staff who support people with dementia
