CE Credit


The Year-in-Review highlights the most influential delirium research published between April 2, 2019 – April 1, 2020. These primary literature sources include 4 studies on biomarkers, 8 clinical trials, and 7 prevalence / outcome studies. The primary purpose of this module is to disseminate new knowledge gained through current research. Secondary purposes may include the facilitation of clinical advances through a change in clinician behaviors, improved collaboration among various disciplines and healthcare roles (i.e. established or early career researchers as well as acute, post-acute or community clinicians) and improved patient or population outcomes.
