About cognitive impairment

Cognitive impairment in hospital is often associated with adverse outcomes, such as falls. For some people with cognitive impairment and for their carers and families, a hospital stay can be a negative experience. Staff may  struggle to provide the right care in the absence of appropriate education and training.
