Doctor in the House: World Delirium Awareness Day

Dr George Lee returns to discuss the latest medical news. Expect deep insights delivered with generous humour. If you suddenly observe changes like paranoia and anger, hallucinations, memory loss, or incoherent speech in an older relative or friend, it could be extremely alarming. In conjunction with World Delirium Awareness Day on 14 March, consultant geriatrician Prof Dr Tan Maw Pin from Universiti Malaya joins Dr George to explain how delirium affects the older person, and should not be confused with dementia.
