Activity Summary

Required reading for all learners: Implicit Bias impacts patient outcomes

Delirium affects at least 30% of hospitalized pediatric patients and contributes to increased length of stay, ventilator days, mortality and costs, and may have long term sequalae, but less than 40% of ICUs consistently screen patients for delirium. This advanced session includes pathophysiology, clinical features, and modifiable factors which can contribute to delirium development. Attendees improve their knowledge of screening tools, risk factors and interventions for delirium prevention and management while diagnosing and managing several interactive case studies. All leave with resources to maximize their own unit’s processes for delirium recognition and intervention.


  • Identify risk factors for the development of delirium in infants and children.
  • Employ pediatric delirium screening and prevention into routine clinical practice.
  • Analyze pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic interventions to prevent and manage delirium in children.
