This webinar will review the definition, prevalence, incidence, and risk factors for delirium. We will discuss the diagnosis, treatment, and strategies to prevent delirium. Participants will have the opportunity to explore the impact of delirium on patients/residents, specifically falls and hospital readmissions.
