Educate, support and reassure patients who become acutely confused, and their relatives.

wow. This was so challenging. I would recommend this module for all the nurses managing confusion. I also encourage all medics to carry the knowledge and use it back home. Many people in our villages require this support or knowledge to take care of confused people back home.

This has been a challenging CPD with many new terminologies. Thanks for putting this up it encourages us to read more without focusing only to what we only practice
