Abstract:
PURPOSE/OBJECTIVES: Acquiring new assessment skills require multiple approaches to fully engage learners. Human simulation provides opportunity to practice new skills without involving patients. Our approach was to produce a Delirium DVD which demonstrated the needed skills and modeled behavior for delirium management. Significance: Delirium is considered a medical emergency. Early recognition and treatment is important to minimize adverse effects. BACKGROUND/RATIONALE: Unrecognized delirium was a contributing factor to harm from patient falls. An interdisciplinary team formed to revise delirium management orders. The team recommended adoption of a standardized approach for medicine and nursing to screen patients for delirium. The Confusion Assessment Method (CAM) tool was selected based on evidence and quick administration. DESCRIPTION: By using the CAM, nursing can accurately screen for delirium and request early medical intervention to manage delirium. Volunteer nurses were instructed in how to use the CAM. Their feedback to the implementation team was to demonstrate the CAM rather than rely on didactic methods. The implementation team decided to access the simulation laboratory to produce a DVD which would demonstrate the two most common types of delirium, how to use the CAM, embed elements of delirium prevention and management into the scenario, and model how to contact physicians and communicate CAM findings to them. Traditionally learners would come to the simulation site to experience the situation and then review the filmed scenario. Due to the volume of staff who needed the information and the desire to "pause" the scene and allow for dialogue the team chose the DVD as one aspect of delirium education. OUTCOME: Education was done using the DVD as an introduction and then used written scenarios for the staff to practice applying the CAM. A review of the delirium protocol, and order set was done. In thirty minutes staff had relevant content and could apply the CAM. Interpretation/Conclusion: Using the simulation lab. to film the scene, plus add in voiceovers to reinforce and clarify information materials enhanced the learning experience. Through the use of visual, audio, motion, and printed material multiple levels of learning were incorporated. IMPLICATIONS FOR PRACTICE: Simulation can be taken to staff for successful learning.
