I would like to request a copy of the Trust Delirium guideline and management tool. I note from an FOI from 19 November 2018 that it was at that point in the process of being ratified. Can you also let me know how this was communicated to staff?
Please find below our newly launched delirium guideline and management tool.
The delirium guideline and management tool was launched on the 21st May 2019 at our dementia conference. The dementia and delirium conference was well attended by over 80 staff working across the hospital in a variety of roles. On the day, Delirium management Guidance posters, MDT delirium management tools, lanyard cards and the delirium patient information leaflet were available to take away and disseminate to their colleagues.
The new guideline and management tool is embedded within training across the Trust (clinical induction, HCA induction, Tier 2 dementia training, dementia champion group). We are also currently in the process of booking and providing ward based training across the Trust for staff.
