Delirium – National Survey of Healthcare Practitioners


If you are involved with patients who may have delirium, Dr Chris Fox and his team are developing a front line easy to use screening tool from the 4 AT and your response to our survey will assist this.

Please see the poster for details on how to complete the survey which should only take about 10 minutes to complete online. We would welcome responses from multi disciplinary staff – doctors, nurses, physiotherapists and occupational therapists who come into contact with patients with delirium (or acute confusional state) as part of their routine work.
