Mental Status Changes: A Clinical and Spiritual Perspective

 

This course provides an overview of the etiology, assessment and management of delirium and agitation at the end of life. Delirium is highly prevalent in the final days of life and is upsetting to both family and professional caregivers. Using a case-based approach, participants will learn to identify the signs and symptoms of delirium and differentiate it from terminal anguish and dementia. Physical, as well as psycho-spiritual causes are described, along with appropriate, evidence-based interventions.
