HealthTrust presents…“Delirium in Hospitalized Older Adults”
Delirium is a syndrome that affects a wide variety of hospitalized patients. It leads to increased mortality in hospitalized patients. This syndrome can also cause patients to be anxious and in a state of discomfort. In some cases, this syndrome can be prevented with non‐pharmacological interventions. However, if a patient develops delirium, there are both non‐pharmacological and pharmacological methods to treat these patients.
Learning Objectives for Pharmacists & Nurses | At the end of this session, participants should be able to:
- Review etiologies and manifestations of delirium in hospitalized older adults.
- Describe strategies for preventing delirium in hospitalized patients.
