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

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...
The purpose of this study is to develop a comprehensive Delirium Abatement Program of care of delirious patients in the post acute care setting and to evaluate its impact on persistence an...
Delirium is a common morbid condition in hospitalized adults. Treatment of delirium has been unsatisfactory and prevention is the preferred goal. Based on limited experimental research, ra...
With the increasing number of advanced surgical operations being done annually, including the elderly, the risk of developing postoperative delirium is potentially high. Postoperative deli...
A promising monitoring strategy for delirium is the use of cerebral oximetry, but its validity during delirium is unknown. We assessed the relationship between oximetry and delirium. We hypothesized t...
Delirium has a high incidence pathology associated with negative outcomes. Although highly preventable, half the cases are not recognized. One major cause of delirium misdiagnosis is the absence of a ...
Delirium occurs in up to 80% of intensive care unit (ICU) patients. Despite its prevalence in this population, there continues to be inaccuracies in delirium assessments. In the absence of accurate de...
Delirium is a common mental disorder, which is distressing and has serious adverse outcomes in hospitalised patients. Prevention of delirium is desirable from the perspective of patients and carers, a...
Delirium is challenging to diagnose in older populations. It is often reversible, and when detected, treatment can improve patient outcomes. Delirium detection currently relies on trained staff to con...
Cognitive disorders including delirium, dementia, and other cognitive disorders. These may be the result of substance use, trauma, or other causes.
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).
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)
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.
Learning that is manifested in the ability to respond differentially to various stimuli.
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...
