Evidence to Improve Care


Care for Adults


The following quality standard addresses care for adults age 18 years or older who are at risk for delirium or who are experiencing symptoms of delirium. It includes people who are in hospital (including emergency departments, acute and critical care, complex continuing care facilities and rehabilitation hospitals, and preoperative clinics), those transitioning from hospital to home, and those in long-term care homes and other community settings.

This quality standard focuses on the identification, assessment, prevention, and management of delirium across all health care professions.
