CTSI Learning Health System Initiative: Inpatient Delirium Risk Identification and Assessment
The purpose of this research study is to determine if there are certain people who are more at risk for developing delirium after hip fracture surgery.
- Presurgery visit: You will be asked to do four brief memory and thinking tests, assess your pain and how weak you may be feeling (this is called frailty). This should not take more than 15 minutes.
- After your surgery: Two things will happen. 1) You will be seen twice a day by a research coordinator. He or she will assess you for your alertness. 2) When you are feeling alert and in less pain, you will be asked to complete a few more memory and thinking measures while you are in the hospital. These measures will allow us to understand your memory and thinking abilities a bit more.
- When you go home: We will call you or a care provider to identify where you are living and how you are doing
- Focus group: We will offer you and your care provider the option of visiting us again later in the year to participate in a focus group. A focus group involves certain people who experienced the same event.
- Individuals entering the hospital with hip fracture with and without dementia.
