Delirium is a common – but frequently overlooked – complication in patient populations of any age in health care settings. Because delirium is associated with poor outcomes and can be very frightening for patients and their loved ones, proven approaches to identification, treatment, and prevention are needed. This session will define delirium and discuss best practices and specific approaches for prevention, detection, and treatment in adult patients.
