New INQRI Article on Delirium Treatment & Prevention

INQRI grantees Michele Balas and William Burke recently concluded their study focused on implementing, analyzing and disseminating an evidence-based, nurse-led, inter-professional, multi-component program focused on improving the care and outcomes of critically ill adults.  Their study focused on applying the ABCDE bundle (developed at Vanderbilt University) which is a program of delirium screening, prevention and treatment.*

To learn more about this very important work, check out the team's new article, recently published in Critical Care Nurse: "Critical care nurses' role in implementing the 'ABCDE bundle' into practice."
