How to achieve quick wins when implementing Ontario’s Delirium Quality Standard

Body

Delirium is a preventable harm for your older patients which can lead to functional decline and death. Do you have reliable and consistent processes across your organization to prevent or manage it?  


Regardless of your type or size of organization, or where you’re starting from (getting started or building on successes, or anything in between), our new Practical Implementation Guide for Ontario’s Delirium Quality Standard is intended to help you elevate your practice in delirium care. 


The guide focuses on achieving quick wins and includes:

  • steps for assembling a team, including a sample “elevator pitch”
  • ready-to-use change ideas with tips on prioritizing which one to start with first
  • steps for action planning, including a  planning template, an action plan template, and strategies for overcoming common implementation barriers


Delirium care is an important component of senior friendly care (sfCare). sfCare is evidence-based and foundational care that meets the unique needs of older adults. It is not an add-on to care, and must be woven into the fabric of care for every older adult across every part of the healthcare system, especially during a pandemic. 


The best time to start protecting the well-being of your older patients by addressing the gaps in delirium care is now! Addressing delirium care as a priority during pandemic recovery will be an important enabler for patient flow and outcomes while the system collectively addresses the backlog for healthcare services.
