Delirium Capability Reflection toolkit 

To mark World Delirium Awareness Day, HOPSLA has developed the delirium capability self-reflection toolkit for inpatient teams who work with older people to use during the week 12 – 16 March.

The self-reflection toolkit can help engage and encourage teams to identify what is working well with their delirium care, and where improvements could be made.
