Hello,

 

Welcome to the second edition of Linkages. Going forward, the Centre for Studies in Aging and Health (CSAH) at Providence Care is excited to be working in collaboration with the Seniors Health Knowledge Network as host of their website and Knowledge Brokers.  We will keep you updated on upcoming events, webinars and new resources produced by SHKN and affiliated partners.

This conference will discuss pressing issues surrounding hot topics, frailty, cognition, and poverty. This cross-sector conference will leave you with a solid understanding of various strategies to help shape the future of aging and health. Save October 24th in your calendars and look for more information to come.

Spotlight: Delirium 
 
Delirium is a disturbance of consciousness with reduced ability to focus, sustain, or shift attention. It is a change in cognition that occurs over a short period of time and tends to fluctuate over the course of the day. Symptoms include problems with attention, thinking, memory, psychomotor changes and disruption of the sleep-wake cycle. Delirium is usually triggered by acute medical or surgical illness, or by certain medications.
