Abstract [en]

Introduction: Cognitive impairment and delirium are often unidentified in hospitalized patients. Despite the fact that 40 % of all cases of delirium might be prevented, national guidelines are missing in Sweden. Study aim was to examine the routines about assessing cognitive function and delirium in a university hospital and a county hospital in Sweden.

Methods: A web based questionnaire was developed and distributed to 58 managers. The questionnaire addressed routines for identifying cognitive impairment and delirium in clinical practice, for instance which assessment tools, and which terms were used.

Results: The response rate was 43 % (25/58) equally distributed for nurses and physicians managers (43 and 44 %). Study findings showed that structured assessment of cognitive function and delirium were missing. Twelve managers (48 %) had established routines for assessment of cognitive function and seven (28 %) for assessment of delirium. It was unclear how the assessments were performed. Most common was free descriptions based on varying questions. Assessment tools and the term delirium were rarely used.  

Conclusion: Established routines of assessing cognitive function and delirium are missing. Validated rapid clinical assessment tools for cognitive function and delirium are needed as well as consensus to use the term “delirium”.

Abstract [en]

This action research project started in 2015 with the aim to achieve an overall sustainable hospital transition to person-centered care. In the first wave of change towards an overall hospital transition to person-centered care, hospital managers were invited to work-shops and discussions. Eight hospital units were nominated as pilot units. Specific acilitators/change leaders were educated in the philosophy of person-centered care. A learning network was created including the project managers, project unit managers and facilitators/change leaders. Based on the theory of person-centered care, and the importance of focusing soft skills and learning skills and not just technical skills, as well as experiences and reflections during this action research project, a general model for transition to person-centered care was developed. Steps included in the model: 1) Introduction; 2) V alues linked to person-centered care; 3) Multidisciplinary teams including/involving patients and/or next of kin; 4) Communication skills, and in-depth knowledge about person-centered care, 5) Practical application of the person-centered approach into clinical practice.
