In addition to Our Tools, our group has developed a series of resources related to the topics we study.
Delirium is a medical condition that causes a temporary problem with mental function. It has multiple causes, but in older people it is often the presenting symptom of another underlying illness. Even so, delirium in older adults often goes unrecognized by health care professionals. Working with an interdisciplinary Delirium Awareness Steering Committee at the Nova Scotia Health Authority, our team promotes delirium awareness by curating information and resources for health care professionals, families and the general public.
