Dementia, Depression and Delirium in the Elderly Training

Dementia, Depression and Delirium in the Elderly Training

CPD Points 6 | Duration 1 Days | £119.00 per delegate

Course Introduction

As the population ages, many older adults will suffer one or more of the three D’s: delirium, dementia, and depression.

Because signs and symptoms overlap, distinguishing one from the others isn’t always easy. However, an accurate assessment is essential because treatments depend on the diagnosis. Delegates on this course will examine how the three D’s differ and discuss how a careful history and assessment guides your nursing interventions. This course will appeal to those who wish to have a basic understanding of the differences between these three conditions.

You will be allocated 3 CPD points on the completion of the course.

This course is accredited by the Royal College of General Practitioners
