Abstract:

This guideline has been developed to improve the screening assessment of older adult clients for delirium, dementia and depression. This guideline does not include recommendations for the management of these conditions in day-to-day nursing practice.

Best practice guidelines are systematically developed statements to assist nurses and clients in decision making about appropriate healthcare (Field & Lohr, 1990). This guideline focuses on: (1) Practice recommendations: directed at the nurse to guide practice regarding assessment and screening for delirium, dementia and depression in older adults; (2) Education recommendations: directed at educational institutions and organizations in which nurses work to support its implementation; (3) Organization and policy recommendations: directed at practice settings and the environment to facilitate nurses’ practice; (4) Evaluation and monitoring indicators.
