Workshop 25 (ticket)
Detecting and Diagnosing Pediatric Delirium With the Application of Standardized Clinical Tools: The How and the Why

Delirium pathophysiology is complex and generally multifactorial in origin, including underlying disease processes, medication effects, and the disruptive, disorienting environment of the pediatric intensive care unit (PICU). Evidence-based screening tools for pediatric delirium have been developed and validated. Child and adolescent psychiatrists increasingly must provide expertise in diagnosis and management of these critically ill children. Participants understand the necessity of recognizing delirium in all children, including infants and toddlers; learn about available screening tools; understand how to use the screening tools; learn to identify the subtypes of delirium and the confounding effects of pain and anxiety; and discuss evidence-based strategies to manage delirium.
