Delirium, prevention and long-term outcomes

For more than 30 years, Dr. Sharon K. Inouye has dedicated herself to the identification and prevention of delirium in the hospital. She created the Confusion Assessment Method (CAM), the most widely used method for identification of delirium worldwide. In her last video, Dr. Inouye described the features of delirium. She now discusses preventative strategies and long-term outcomes.

PS: I say it over and over again: There's no one more important than the caregiver in the daily life of a frail person.
