We launched our Psychiatry Liaison Team in the Department of Neuropsychiatry of Okayama University Hospital in 2009. Since nearly half of all new cases had suffered delirium, we subsequently launched our Delirium Control Team in 2011.
The main purposes of the Delirium Control Team are to prevent the occurrence of delirium through early interventions by various medical staff, and to educate co-medical staff about delirium care. In this article, we present the recent activities and future outlook of both the Psychiatry Liaison Team and the Delirium Control Team.
