Serious or life-threatening illness requires whole-person care. Cognitive and behavioral symptoms need to be appropriately assessed and managed. Neurological diseases require specific knowledge. Delirium is a symptom that is frequently present and inadequately recognized and treated near the end of life. Rates of dementia continue to rise with the aging population. Providers caring for the seriously ill need evidence-based education on the assessment, treatment, and management of a variety of psychiatric and cognitive symptoms and diseases. This activity engages the learner in case-based self-assessment questions and includes references and rationale for responses. The online self-assessment allows the learner to engage the content on demand at her/his convenience.
