Delirium is an acute and fluctuating disturbance of consciousness characterized by reduced attention, impaired cognition and perception, usually resulting from general physical conditions. Delirium contributes to longer hospital length of stay, increased mortality, increased healthcare costs, and long-term cognitive and functional impairment. However, it is often underdiagnosed and undertreated. E-learning (electronic learning) proves to be a time-efficient, flexible and convenient training method, making it suitable for a large organization like Siriraj hospital where there is a large employee turnover rate. So the investigators want to compare the passing rate between the e-learning group and the traditional learning group.
Primary objective: Compare the passing rate between the e-learning group and the traditional learning group
Secondary objectives: Assess the trainees' satisfaction and problems associated with e-learning implementation, Investigate the causes of inaccurate CAM-ICU assessment for improvement in future training sessions
Allocation: Randomized, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Health Services Research

Delirium is characterized by changes in mental status, inattension, disorganized thinking, and altered consciousness. Prevalence of delirium in critically ill patients has varied from 20~8...
Postoperative delirium may result in many adverse complications. At present little is known about postoperative delirium in patients after crniotomy because they may manifest similar sympt...
This project seeks to describe the incidence of delirium in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and to identify risk and preventive factors associated with development of delirium. Especially, ...
In our randomized study, we aim to test the hypothesis that the reinstitution of a normal circadian rhythm by continuous infusions of dexmedetomidine compared to propofol between 8pm and 6...
Postoperative delirium after total knee replacement surgery has been related to significant morbidity and mortality among high risk patients. Anesthetic care might play a role in the devel...
Delirium is an acute and reversible geriatric syndrome that represents a decompensation of cerebral function. Delirium is associated with adverse postoperative outcomes, but controversy exists regardi...
Delirium occurs frequently in adults and is an independent predictor of mortality. However, the epidemiology and outcomes of pediatric delirium are not well-characterized. The primary objectives of th...
Delirium in the ICU is associated with poor outcomes but is under-detected. Here we evaluated performance of a novel, graded test for objectively detecting inattention in delirium, implemented on a cu...
Advances have been made in our understanding of the neuropathogenesis, recognition, and strategies for reducing the incidence of delirium in acute-care settings. However, relatively little attention h...
The clinical relevance of brain β-amyloidosis in older adults without dementia is not established. As delirium and dementia are strongly related, studies on patients with delirium may give pathophysi...
A form of DELIRIUM which occurs after GENERAL ANESTHESIA.
Cognitive disorders including delirium, dementia, and other cognitive disorders. These may be the result of substance use, trauma, or other causes.
An acute organic mental disorder induced by cessation or reduction in chronic alcohol consumption. Clinical characteristics include CONFUSION; DELUSIONS; vivid HALLUCINATIONS; TREMOR; agitation; insomnia; and signs of autonomic hyperactivity (e.g., elevated blood pressure and heart rate, dilated pupils, and diaphoresis). This condition may occasionally be fatal. It was formerly called delirium tremens. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1175)
Change in learning in one situation due to prior learning in another situation. The transfer can be positive (with second learning improved by first) or negative (where the reverse holds).
A principle that learning is facilitated when the learner receives immediate evaluation of learning performance. The concept also hypothesizes that learning is facilitated when the learner is promptly informed whether a response is correct, and, if incorrect, of the direction of error.
Health care (or healthcare) is the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease, illness, injury, and other physical and mental impairments in humans. Health care is delivered by practitioners in medicine, chiropractic, dentistry, nursing, pharmacy, a...
