Abstract
Purpose: This study was conducted to examine the knowledge level and assessment experience of nurses in
regards to delirium, and to utilize the study results as baseline data for planning delirium education programs for
nurses. Methods: Subjects were 465 nurses who were working in a general hospital. A 'delirium related knowledge
and assessment experience' questionnaire was used to collect data. Results: Knowledge levels regarding delirium
averaged 70 out of 100, and at each domain, they scored 87 for etiology of delirium, 62 for symptoms, and 69
for nursing management. The knowledge level of delirium was significantly different according to educational level
(F=3.851, p=.022), past education related to geriatrics(t=2.471, p=.014), and awareness of need for in-service
education on geriatric nursing(F=2.663, p=.032). About 85% of nurses had past experience of dealing with delirious
patients and only 7.7% of nurses used delirious state assessment tools. Conclusion: According to the above results,
it is necessary, not only to provide delirium related educational programs for nurses, but also to emphasize the
usefulness of applying the assessment tool.
