Occupational therapy's role in delirium assessment, prevention and management within the intensive care unit

Presenter: Lyndsay Laxton & Meghan Morrow

Patients experiencing delirium during their hospital admission have an increased mortality rate, increased hospital length of stay, and decreased level of functional independence for ADL/IADL performance at discharge. Occupational therapists are well positioned to provide meaningful interventions to aid in prevention and management of delirium. This webinar will discuss the characteristics of delirium and clinical prevalence, as well as relevance to the field of occupational therapy. This webinar will also identify the most appropriate assessment tool to detect the presence of delirium and detail traditional and cutting edge interventions for occupational therapy practitioners.

After taking part in this webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify a screening tool with high validity and specificity to identify the presence of delirium.
  2. Identify neurocognitive and health outcomes of patients experiencing delirium.
  3. Implement 3-5 targeted interventions to prevent and manage delirium.
