This NMHDU web page collates a collection of evidence-based best practice statements which have been made available a resource “for nurses who work with older people all or some of the time in general, acute services”.
The purpose of these resources is to support these nurses and guide their practice, thereby helping them explain to others what best care for older people involves.
These resource have been put together by a team from City University London, led by Dr Jackie Bridges. The resources comprise:
- The King`s College Hospital Management of Delirium poster.
- European Delirium Association Resources: Stop Delirium.
- The Older Peoples’ Mental Health Resources Information Pack, developed in Gloucester.
- Best Practice for Older People in Acute Care Settings (BPOP): Guidance for Nurses (2009).
