Dementia and Delirium Care

Dementia and Delirium Care

This element of the induction process outlines the minimum requirements of a Registered Nurse to support safe, effective, person centred care of the patient with Dementia or Delirium within NHSGGC.

The resources aim to develop your confidence and skills to implement care for the person living with dementia who is admitted to the acute hospital. NHSGGC  supports the use of the national ‘Getting to Know Me’ document which links with the “what matters to me” ward boards, Single Question in Delirium (SQiD) within the Care Rounding chart.

The Think Delirium presentation aims to raise awareness and provide an opportunity to improve delirium identification, management and risk reduction within your ward or department. Be an agent of change and “Call TIME” on Delirium, especially in Dementia.
