Résumé

The onset of delirium in older adults, especially in critical
care units, is a major factor in increasing the length of
hospital stays, with multiple significant consequences.
Although it is common, delirium frequently manifests as a
result of modifiable precipitating factors. Sadly, the current
nursing approaches to delirium are often sub-optimal,
although guidelines and protocols are available to enable
them to intervene quickly, to reduce the incidence and
consequences of delirium. A supportive environment is
needed in order to introduce new practices into critical
care settings, and leadership by managers and nurses
is necessary to create an environment conducive to
implementation of new practices. -- Keywords : nursing, leadership, critical care, delirium
detection, delirium assessment.
