Development of a multicomponent intervention program to prevent delirium in intensive care unit patients

Abstract

Introduction Delirium is common in Intensive Care Unit (ICU) patients and associated with poor outcome. Therefore delirium prevention is imperative. Interventions targeting several delirium risk factors represent a promising strategy for prevention. In preparation for a stepped wedge randomized controlled trial to study the effect of a multicomponent intervention program on ICU delirium, we developed an intervention program which is aimed at delirium prevention to ultimately increase the number of delirium free days.
