Determination of the Feasibility of a Multicomponent Intervention Program to Prevent Delirium in the ICU

Determination of the Feasibility of a Multicomponent Intervention Program to Prevent Delirium in the ICU

During this study a feasible multicomponent intervention program to prevent ICU delirium was developed based on expert consensus. As no consensus was reached on cognitive training, a pilot study is planned to determine the feasibility of cognitive training in the ICU. During Delphi round one 100% of the questionnaires was completed, during round two 79%. After two rounds the experts agreed on the feasibility of the interventions targeting sleep deprivation, immobility, visual and hearing impairment, and cognitive impairment, except for cognitive training. A total of 38 experts were selected following purposive sampling.
