Project Information

Unit Based Delirium Assessment Compliance and Effectiveness

Project Description: Utilizing pre-data showing poor compliance and effective use of the CAM ICU assessment (validated tool for identification of delirium in the ICU), the unit practice council will perform a survey of nurses in 4W to identify barriers to appropriate use of the tool. Following the survey, a focused education campaign will be done. We will track compliance to CAM-ICU assessment and track improvement and sustainability over 3-6 months post-education to see if the education was successful.
