Media Release - Delirium care standard recognises value of family and carer support

On 9 September 2021, the Commission released the updated Delirium Clinical Care Standard (2021).

With one in four older medical patients affected, an updated national clinical care standard to improve care for people at risk of delirium – a serious and often preventable condition – has been applauded by healthcare professionals.

The COVID-19 pandemic has sharpened the focus on delirium for hospitalised patients, their families, carers and healthcare professionals.
