Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care
Sydney: ACSQHC; 2016.
The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care, in collaboration with consumers, clinicians, researchers and health organisations, has developed the Delirium Clinical Care Standard and resources to guide and support its implementation.
The Delirium Clinical Care Standard aims to ensure that patients with delirium at the time of presentation to hospital receive optimal treatment, and that patients at risk of delirium are identified promptly and preventative strategies are put in place.
Additional resources include an Indicator Specification (a set of suggested indicators to assist with local implementation of the Delirium Clinical Care Standard. Clinicians and health services can use the indicators to monitor the implementation of quality statements, and support improvement as needed), fact sheets for clinicians and consumers, and supporting evidence sources.
