Delirium

2.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM

The credit is available from June 12, 2020, through June 12, 2021

The AGS Delirium Module is in an online, self-directed online educational curriculum with 5 lessons along with corresponding audio companions. Each of these lessons includes a self-directed PowerPoint presentation with notes, references, and an audio companion. Learners can complete the module at their own pace and start/stop as needed.

This module is designed to teach best practices in Geriatric Emergency Department Care and address approaches to improve the care of older adults with delirium in the Emergency Department, as well as ways to prevent delirium in the ED for those at risk. Translating evidence-based geriatric programs in delirium prevention and management to the ED setting may improve care for older adults with or at risk for delirium and may improve delirium-related adverse outcomes including inpatient falls, functional decline and mortality. Improved delirium assessment practices may result in improved recognition of ED delirium and improve care transitions.
