Description

As the end of life approaches, patients with either advanced cancer or other progressive life-limiting illnesses may experience a reduction in their cognitive function, such as forgetfulness, confusion or agitation. This session provides a framework for the management of diminishing cognitive function.

This session was reviewed by Leena Srivastava and Christina Faull and last updated in December 2015.

Objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:
• List the key groups of professionals involved in managing deteriorating cognitive function at the end of life
• Outline the main drug and non-drug interventions available to optimise cognitive function in the patient population with progressive levels of need
• Explain the usefulness and limitations of each intervention
• Recognise the communication and information needs of patients and their family or carers
• Outline the key aspects of an integrated, incremental approach to managing progressive cognitive impairment
