Delirium and COVID-19
Older adult COVID-19 patients are at a high risk for delirium. And delirium or altered mental status can be a presenting symptom for COVID-19. The Hospital Elder Life Program has created a resource page for delirium and COVID-19, including a "HELP Toolkit" to help older adult patients maintain physical and cognitive functioning while isolated in the hospital.
NIDUS is a collaborative, multidisciplinary network dedicated to the acceleration of scientific discovery in delirium research, through focused collaboration and creation of sustainable infrastructure to enhance innovative and high-quality research.
NIDUS was created in response to a call from the National Institutes on Aging to support a collaborative network to advance scientific research on the causes, mechanisms, outcomes, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of delirium in older adults.
