Dementia is an irreversible and common syndrome for the elderly. If delirium occurs on a dementia elderly,it will lead to faster deterioration in cognitive function, higher chance of moving to residential facilities and higher mortality.

And after 12 weeks, there are still continuous results(B:3.470 p= .000).2.The experimental group showed significant improvement in attitude level of distinguishing between delirium and disordered behavior in dementia(B:3.470,p= .000). 3.Through interventional multifaceted educational program, the experimental group's ability to identify delirium and abnormal behavior with dementia, the difference before and after the test has a significantly improved effect than the control group(B:1.345,p= .000).4.After the intervention,the experimental group had positive feedback on learning satisfaction and significant improvement in nursing self-confidence(Mean: 4.63 , SD:0.428).
