Staff, patients and families experiences of giving and receiving care during an episode of delirium in an acute hospital care setting – Healthcare Improvement Scotland – September 2013

A Report by Professor Belinda Dewar, University of West of Scotland, Penny Bond, Michelle Miller and Karen Goudie, Healthcare Improvement Scotland

“This report provides details of a project undertaken to explore staff, patients’ and families’ experience of episodes of delirium in an acute hospital setting. The Improving Care for Older People in Acute Care workstream has been working with colleagues from the Scottish Delirium Association and others to design, develop and test a delirium bundle to support staff with the early identification and management of delirium in caring for older people in the acute care setting. As part of this development, the project team was keen to explore what it felt like to both give and receive care during an episode of delirium to:
enhance our learning about caring for patients and family during an episode of delirium
help us to improve communication, and
contribute to the development of a guidance document for the delirium bundle.”
