HEAR (Health Evidence Awareness Report) are published by a collaborative group of healthcare librarians working mainly in the HSE and other healthcare organisations in Ireland.
For healthcare professionals, there are links to relevant guidelines, research and reviews. For patients and the public, there is information on quick reads, useful websites and support services. We have created a suite of bulletins based on a comprehensive list of health care topics which you will see listed below.
Welcome to the fourth issue of HEAR for 2017. The purpose of HEAR is to provide specialised information to health professionals, patients and the public about key health topics. Each issue is the result of the collaborative effort of librarians from health organisations across Ireland. This issue contains fast facts on delirium, guidelines, research from Ireland, delirium toolkits, patient information, easy reads and the latest evidence. You can access the full-text HERE

Healthcare Improvement Scotland – Older People in Acute Care Improvement Programme has launched a series of videos on delirium. The videos could be used in a variety of ways to continue to raise awareness of the importance of listening to family members and to further engage a range of partners. The videos highlight three individual stories told by women of their mothers’ experience of delirium.
