The Measurement and Harmonization Core, led by Dr. Rich Jones, aims to develop a repository of core measures for delirium screening, diagnosis and severity, and to harmonize data across all types of delirium studies. These efforts will enhance the quality and consistency of measurement. It will also enable investigators to compare and share data across studies. Consequently, this allows for accelerated advances in delirium research. For its harmonization aim, NIDUS will initially focus on harmonizing delirium severity measures. This project includes a systematic review of existing delirium severity measures. In addition, it includes statistical techniques for data harmonization across measures. The harmonization method will include a modified-Delphi consensus process. If interested in learning more about this effort, please contact us for more information on getting involved.

This Core oversees the development and maintenance of various NIDUS resources, including:
