Care for patients with dementia and/or delirium in an acute hospital

21 May 2020


Dementia is one of the main causes of disability later in life, ahead of cancer, cardiovascular disease and stroke. In Singapore it is estimated that 1 in 10 older adults above age of 60 has dementia.  Improving the quality of care in acute hospital for patients with dementia is of growing importance with the current ageing population. Many older people who experience delirium are also likely to have underlying dementia or have an increased chance of developing dementia. Internationally, many institutions have explored various strategies to improve quality of care and reduce risk and development of delirium amongst older adults in acute hospitals.

During this talk, participants will be introduced to:

  1. Information regarding dementia and delirium in older adults, and significance towards acute hospital care
  2. Strategies from overseas institutions in promoting quality of care of older adults with dementia and/or delirium, and exploring the relevance in our local context.
