Description: Delirium is a common syndrome in hospitalized adults and is associated with adverse outcomes including increased mortality, morbidity, and length of stay. Strategies to detect delirium earlier and to prevent the development of delirium in patients at risk have been advocated. We will present a review of the evidence regarding screening for delirium, strategies to prevent delirium, and the comparative diagnostic accuracy of tools used to detect delirium.
