The Assessment and Treatment of Delirium

The Canadian Coalition for Seniors’ Mental Health updated their guideline on assessing and treating older adults with delirium. This is the first guideline from CCSMH of an interdisciplinary nature to address key aspects of seniors’ mental health.

Included in the update to this guideline is a discussion on some of the advancements that have been made since it was last published in 2006, and how those advancements in research and literature should guide clinicians in Canada going forward. Many of the recommendations in this document are practical and drug related.
