Delirium Prevention in the Intensive Care Unit

New Orleans, LA US
November 21, 2019

The presentation will focus on presenting evidence-based information regarding the clinical presentation, diagnosis, assessment, pharmacological management and monitoring of patients with delirium. Exposure to patients with delirium may differ between pharmacists, but it is imperative that all clinicians understand how to appropriately manage this disease state. Consequently, the presentation will provide information that is easy to understand and case-based application questions. As such, pharmacists who are familiar with this patient population and those who are not will gain knowledge that will enable them to provide safe and effective care.
