This report provides an overview of the “Delirium Care Pathways” project which was commissioned to be delivered by NSW Health on behalf of the Health Care of Older Australians Standing Committee (HCOASC). The School of Nursing, Midwifery & Indigenous Health (SNMIH), University of Wollongong (UoW), was sub-contracted to deliver this project to NSW Health. This final report has been informed by ongoing progress reports presented to the Project Management team, HCOASC, and the Project Advisory Group. In this report, there will be a discussion of the background to the project, project management details, data collection and data analysis techniques, a description of the outcomes for the project, and conclusions about how the “Delirium Care Pathways” can be used to inform health care policy and practice. Included in the report is a submission of the “Delirium Care Pathways” Final Version which has been reviewed by HCOSAC. NSW Health will submit the documentation to HCOASC who will manage printing and publication of the documentation.
