What You’ll Learn

Delirium is a major source of suffering for patients, families, and clinicians. It is common across treatment settings, especially for people living with serious illness. Therefore, clinicians who take care of seriously ill patients should have a solid understanding of delirium: what it is, how it presents, and how it is evaluated, prevented, and treated.

This interactive whodunit game challenges learners to conduct a thorough clinical investigation of a patient with delirium to diagnose the cause(s). Upon completing this game, learners will better understand the causes of delirium and how to identify it in patients. To get the most out of this game, CAPC recommends first completing the course Reducing Risks for Older Adults.
