Nurses Discuss ICU Delirium Prevention


At the AACN Clinical Scene Investigator (CSI) Academy Innovation Conference in Philadelphia in September, four Fox Chase ICU nurses—Ashley Moyer, RN, BSN, Kaitlyn Gregory, RN, BSN, Allyson Lloret, RN, BSN, and Erin Longstreth-Papsun, RN, BSN, MSN, OCN —presented a project they developed to facilitate the prevention and early detection of ICU delirium. Fox Chase was one of seven Philadelphia hospitals selected for the CSI Academy, a 16-month nursing leadership and innovation training program designed to empower hospital-based staff nurses to be clinician leaders and change agents whose initiatives measurably improve patient outcomes and hospital bottom lines.
