Pain, Agitation and Delirium


The Pain, Agitation and Delirium Day on March 30 was a great success!  It was the beginning of a journey to help build standardized, sustainable, and effective tools to prevent and reduce PAD issues in our patients across BC.

“Interactive sessions provided good discussion”

“The physician led talks were relevant and appropriate with great info”

“Loved the patient experience – Thank you Jason!”

Here are the Driver Diagram, presentations other resources from the event:
