Advice (Update Jan 6th, 2023): In a worldwide study, it is not possible to be aware of all national laws and regulations. Hence, all national collaborators and participants are responsible to check their own local laws according to ethic approval, data protection or other related regulations.

Aim: (Update Jan 6th 2023): to evaluate service quality, to increase patients’ safety, and to assess the delirium practice; and second, to establish a collaboration network with quality improvement projects and re-evaluations.
Method: worldwide, cross sectoral prevalence study on March 15th, 2023. Attending clinicians will be surveyed for data of the structures of their hospitals/ICUs or units and performance of delirium related approach to inpatients. The primary outcome is the general prevalence of delirium in present patients at 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. on that day, and the practice of delirium assessment methods. Secondary outcome parameters are the use of pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions, presence of protocols, interprofessional education, and others. Statistical analysis will be done for pediatric vs adult patients, conservative vs surgical wards vs Intensive Care Units, high vs low leveled income countries, and others.
Expected results: the survey will explore current practices of delirium management in institutions worldwide
