Information about the Delirium Clinical Care Standard for clinicians

What do clinicians need to know?

The Delirium Clinical Care Standard includes eight evidence-based quality statements to ensure that:

  • Patients at risk of delirium are identified promptly and receive preventive strategies before or during a hospital admission
  • Patients with delirium receive optimal treatment to reduce the duration and severity of the condition.

The Delirium Clinical Care Standard was updated in September 2021, and includes the eight quality statements listed below.
