What do nurses need to know about delirium & delirium prevention? : UBC Synthesis Project Andrews, Gail; Henry, Laura; Touchette, France; Kanter, Jenny; Kezirian, Alexis

Abstract

OUR ANALYSIS ● Respondents are professionally less experienced, with the majority having practiced less than 5 years as a Registered Nurse (RN) or Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) ● Nurses struggle with managing the difficult behaviours that accompany delirium ● Burnout in caring for these patients is experienced by over a quarter of respondents ● Tools to capture delirium are not adequate, as many respondents answered that policies are unfamiliar, not user friendly or too time consuming to implement ● Suggestions on how to improve delirium are included - most notably, many nurses would prefer CAM/PRISME tools be formatted a flowsheet
