Produced by the HCOASC in 2006, the aim of the Delirium Care Pathways project was to build on the HCOASC Clinical Practice Guidelines for the Management of Delirium in Older People, by developing pathways for patients/clients, carers and practitioners across care settings: (i) community; (ii) acute; and (iii) residential aged care facilities.
