    Presenter Bio: Deb is currently an occupational therapist working in acute care at Exeter Hospital where she has been for over three years. Prior to acute care, she worked in outpatient rehab for nine years from pediatric to adult. She has experience with diagnoses from neurologic to orthopedic. Most recently, she has become interested in the effects of COVID-19 on cognition, and the need for appropriate assessment for these patients.

    1. Attendees will understand the similarities and differences between common assessments for cognition and delirium. 

    2. Attendees will identify client factors that affect the selection of an appropriate assessment.

    3. Attendees will gain an understanding of the next steps for clients for intervention and follow up assessment.
