Title: The 3 D’s: Differentiating Depression, Delirium, and Dementia to improve treatment outcomes in the older adult patient
Description: The 3 D’s; Dementia, delirium, and depression are all serious conditions that are particularly common in older people. The similarity in symptoms means the conditions can go undetected and untreated. However, although they may present in similar ways, there are differences in the treatment and support approaches used for each. It is vital that health and care professionals can identify key risks, signs, and symptoms associated with all three conditions so that appropriate support, treatment, and management can be provided.
