Evidence-based Clinical Care: Delirium

September 30, 2021

The Evidence-Based Clinical Care initiatives provide the structure and guidance for Baptist Health South Florida in the design, adoption and implementation of relevant and up-to-date synthesized research-based clinical pathways and protocols that can be measured in real time across the entire patient episode of care, in order to eliminate clinical variation, improve patient safety and reduce cost. Clinical pathways are continually updated and adjusted.

This course will provide the healthcare team with strategies to prevent delirium in the inpatient setting and to manage these patients with non-pharmacological and pharmacological approaches in both the critical care and inpatient settings.
