This microlearning aims to explain what is delirium, what causes it, how it can be recognised it, and what to do about it. Delirium is a sudden change in a person’s mental state, that is characterised by fluctuation in attention and awareness. Unfortunately, it could happen to anyone; hence this microlearning provides evidence base recommendations that could be helpful for the patient, their carers, and different allied health professionals.
