Improving delirium in Specialist Palliative Care Units (SPCUs)

Improving the detection, assessment, management and prevention of delirium in SPCUs

About the trial

Although good practice guidelines exist, these are not usually used in hospices, where delirium is common and often treatable. 

This study will work alongside public involvement group members, staff and volunteers in three Yorkshire hospices to introduce an "implementation strategy" to get "what we should do" to " what we do". This strategy could also be used in hospices country-wide and in care homes, where similar problems exist.
