Delirium Prevention, Assessment, Treatment and Management - Online CME Course

Currently, clinicians are unaware of the brain damage incurred during delirium and do not appreciate the importance of preventative measures and prompt identification of emergent delirium. This activity is designed for learners to identify theories of pathogenesis and the link to clinical conditions responsible for these pathophysiological presentations, identify patients at risk for delirium as well as avoidable insults that may precipitate delirium in at risk patients, learn about alternative to PIMs (potentially inappropriate mediations) should be used when necessary, and to identify potentially avoidable negative consequences of delirium. Learners will appreciate the importance of using evidence-based practice strategies for patients at risk for or experiencing delirium.
