American Geriatrics Society Clinical Practice Guideline for Postoperative Delirium in Older Adults

ONLINE:


Description

The overall goal of this clinical guideline is to improve clinical care of adults 65 years and older through prevention and treatment of delirium in the postoperative setting. The recommendations are made based on studies that included both surgical and nonsurgical patient cohorts. The specific aims addressed by the guideline include (1) the nonpharmacologic and pharmacologic interventions that should be implemented perioperatively for the prevention (ie, before delirium occurs) of postoperative delirium, and (2) the nonpharmacologic and pharmacologic interventions that should be implemented perioperatively for treatment (ie, once delirium has occurred) of postoperative delirium.

The development of this paper was supported in part by the American Geriatrics Society Geriatrics-for-Specialists Initiative (AGS-GSI) through an unrestricted grant from the John A. Hartford Foundation.
