Delirium patient leaflet

Delirium patient leaflet

Author: Royal College of Psychiatrists

Resource type :

This leaflet from the Royal College of Psychiatrists outlines what to expect from an episode of delirium for both carers and patients.

It lists appropriate interventions that should be taken to minimise harm and provides guidance for patients and carers around the appropriate use of sedatives.

It could act as a useful basis for discussion and explanation of how delirium can impact on patients by healthcare professionals and also as a basis for developing documentation or care bundles around reducing the risk of delirium.
