Topic Working Group

The Delirium Clinical Care Standard Topic Working Group was established to provide clinical advice, expertise and consumer input during the development of the Clinical Care Standard. The group included individuals with relevant expertise and experience in the Australian health care system and representatives of some key organisations.

The original group was consulted in the review of the Delirium Clinical Care Standard and provided advise on the revised standard.

The role of the Topic Working Group was to:

  • Advise on the scope and key components of care for the Delirium Clinical Care Standard
  • Advise on key sources of evidence including clinical practice guidelines, standards and empirical literature to build upon the body evidence supporting the existing model
  • Advise on the formulation of quality statements and supporting indicators
  • Recommend strategies to support the implementation of the Delirium Clinical Care Standard
  • Actively support raising awareness of the Delirium Clinical Care Standard.

All members are required to disclose financial, personal and professional interests that could, or could be perceived to, influence a decision made, or advice given to the Commission.

Disclosures are updated prior to each meeting and managed in line with the Commission’s Policy on Disclosure of Interests.
