Bringing Delirium Identification to the Bedside
Plenary Presenter: Edward Marcantonio, MD, SM
Dr. Marcantonio addressed the pros and cons of delirium identification, stating that he is in favor of identification. He reviewed existing instruments, including their limitations and highlighted new identification tools tailored to acute med/surg settings. The READI study is now testing how to best implement these tools including a delirium identification app.
