Delirium and depression in the older person

When delirium and/or depression are suspected in an older person, the symptoms are often compounded by dementia, so we might call this workshop ‘the three dreaded Ds: differentiation and diagnoses’.  Professional practice requires skilled observation, assessment and clinical decision making. This workshop will empower nurses to identify symptoms that can be effectively treated. 

Program includes:

Delirium: knowing the signs and practising effective responses

Depression: recognisable features and treating - what is treatable.

All sessions will be interactive, including case studies and opportunities for participants to learn from one another.  While the challenges to effective care will be identified, participants will be encouraged to transform their practice and so enhance the lives of the older people they care for in any setting.
