Older adults are at a higher risk for depression and cognitive disorders, yet the individual conditions can be hard to diagnosis and manage because the symptoms may overlap. This webinar, designed for clinicians and case managers, will help untangle depression, delirium, and dementia.
Following this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Describe three symptoms that aid in differentiating delirium from depression, and delirium from dementia
- Describe what clinical assessment tools can be used to identify depression, delirium, and dementia
- Describe two management principles for delirium and dementia
- Identify risk factors for suicide in older adults
