1. A Complex Individual
In this session, we will look at a real-life scenario to determine which of the three major symptoms are being exhibited in one person. Note taking is encouraged as this chapter will be referenced throughout the rest of the course.
2. An Introduction to the 3 D's
In this session, we will review the meaning of each of the terms delirium, depression, and dementia. Additionally, we will highlight common relationships among the three conditions.
3. Understanding the 3 D's - Which Is Which? How Do You Know?
Each of the three Ds has a different pattern on a number of variables. It is essential that the clinician determine which conditions are present, share this information with a medical advisor, and assess and intervene with the person to contribute to their immediate as well as longer term quality of life and well-being. In this session we will review characteristics for each, preparing to determine more accurately which is which in the second part of this course.
