[Research Paper or Poster Presentation] As delirium has identifiable causes and is reversible, efforts should be made to recognize and manage delirium in postoperative older adults. Despite availability of research focused on interventions to reduce risk factors and treat delirium once it occurs, there is a need to analyze and evaluate interventions for early recognition of delirium in hospitalized older adults. A meta-analysis was conducted of interventions for early recognition and management of delirium in hospitalized older adults. The data was categorized depending on the intervention group used in the study (nurse only, physician only, interdisciplinary team) and were considered in terms of the effects of the intervention on minimizing the impact of adverse events including hospital-acquired delirium, functional status, as well as length of stay, morbidity, and mortality. The outcomes used in the analysis were dependent on the aims of the study; only the primary effects of intervention are considered in this poster presentation. A comprehensive literature review was conducted using PubMed, CINAHL, PsycInfo, Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, Web of Science, National Guideline Clearinghouse, Google, and HealthStar databases. References from retrieved articles were also searched. Over 500 potentially relevant studies were identified and 339 were retrieved for further review. Of these 330, 280 studies were excluded at Phase I screening and an additional 37 were excluded at Phase II screening. Twenty-two research reports were used to code studies for inclusion. Eleven studies were excluded after coding was completed. Thus, 11 studies, spanning almost 20 years (1986-2005) provided sufficient information for use in the meta-analysis. Without the ability to recognize delirium early, interventions to enhance patient safety and minimize adverse events will have limited success.
