Upcoming AACN Webinar on Managing Delirium

The American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN) is continuing its webinar series devoted to understanding and implementing updated clinical practice guidelines for pain, agitation and delirium with a session on Thursday, September 19, 10 a.m. PDT, presented by Leanne Boehm, RN, MSN, ACNS-BC.

Registration is now open for the webinar, "Delirium Challenge: Assessing and Managing in Acute/Critical Care."

This work mirrors that of INQRI grantees Michele Balas and William Burke who conducted a project which focuses on preventing complications in mechanically ventilated patients through use of the "Awakening and Breathing Coordination, Delirium assessment and management and Early Exercise and progressive mobility (ABCDE)" bundle.  Balas and Burke led a team to implement, analyze and disseminate an evidence-based, nurse-led, inter-professional, multi-component program focused on improving the care and outcomes of critically ill adults.  In fact, their "Implementing the ABCDE Bundle at the Bedside" was selected as the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses' first PEARL (Practice, Evidence, Application, Resources and Leadership) web-based tool.
