The James Lind Alliance undertook a project with the Intensive Care Foundation to determine the top problems UK ICU survivors, relatives and clinicians want researchers to investigate. Delirium came out in the top three. Lets work together to find out: “What is the best way to identify patients with, or at risk of delirium or agitation – how should the immediate and long-term effects of delirium or agitation be monitored and managed?”
