Summary
"Delirium: Acute confusional states in palliative medicine demonstrates that only an interdisciplinary treatment of delirium between neurology, psychiatry and palliative medicine can develop knowledge of the syndrome and improve patient and family care. This book has been written for palliative care physicians and socialist nurses, neurologists, psychiatrists, and other health professionals treating terminally ill patients offering them a clear account of how to recognize and deal with the syndrome."--BOOK JACKET
