Abstract

Higher rates of delirium have been reported among patients with acute stroke. However, poorly modifiable risk factors have been documented to date while sign and symptoms capable of early detecting its onset and outcomes in this specific population have been largely neglected. The aim of this study was to emerge nurses' clinical knowledge and experiences regarding post-stroke delirium (a) risk factors, (b) signs and symptoms of delirium onset, and (c) outcomes.
