Delirium learning resources

Delirium Learning Resources

NHS Education for Scotland, in collaboration with colleagues from across NHS Scotland, has developed a range of learning resources to support staff and enhance their knowledge and understanding of delirium. It is essential that all staff working across health and social care are able to recognise delirium, seek medical advice, provide appropriate support and take steps to prevent delirium. To support the diversity of learning needs across the workforce the learning resources consist of two modules, which are accessible on Learnpro as well as an interactive mobile application available on iOS and android.

The module ‘An Introduction to Delirium’ provides the baseline knowledge and skills required by all staff working in health and social care settings including in a person’s own home. The module ‘Delirium: Prevention, Management and Support’ has been designed to enhance the knowledge and skills of all health professionals working across all care sectors. It will enable them to feel confident of their ability to identify, treat, prevent and provide appropriate support to people with delirium and their families and carers. The mobile application is available to all staff but is specifically aimed at health professionals who use or potentially could value learning using smart phone technology.
