Abstract:
Level of Intended Audience: Basic;

Purpose: The purpose of this presentation is to provide an evidence-based nursing overview of delirium prevention, recognition, and treatment in hospitalized older adults.


Description: In an interactive case presentation format, delirium etiology, prevention, patient assessment, nursing care strategies, and treatment will be discussed. The Changing Faces of Arline, is the story of a vivacious 97-year-old woman, which will warm the hearts of the audience while demonstrating the importance of evidence-based nursing care in the optimal treatment of delirium.


Implications for Nursing Care of Older Adults: Up to 40% of older adults admitted to acute care hospitals develop new onset delirium. Older adults often possess multiple risk factors for the development of delirium. Increaseed hospital costs, increased mortality, and long term cognitive and functioanal impairment are associated with delirium. Acute Care Nurses need to be skilled in delirium prevention, recognition, and treatment to decrease the incidence of this common geriatric syndrome, and improve outcomes for hospitalized older adults.

Summary: Through increased detection and evidence-based treatment of delirium, nurses are in a key position to improve outcomes for hospitalized older adults. The Changing Faces of Arline will serve to increase awareness of underlying pathology and contributing factors for the development of delirium, and review evidence-based interventions and treatment.
