Nonpharmacological Interventions to Prevent Delirium: An Evidence-Based Systematic Review

Care of patients with BPSD involves pharmacological and nonpharmacological interventions. Therefore, the primary aims of our study were (1) to perform a systematic review of all studies related to multicomponent nonpharmacological delirium interventions and (2) to conduct a quantitative meta-analysis evaluating the effect of these interventions on important clinical outcomes.

Discussion This study showed the literature review on the effective non-pharmacological intervention that can be implemented safely in acute and chronic orthopedic pain.

In the literature, it has been determined that pain (acute or chronic) management is essential for orthopedic. Further well-designed research is needed on non-pharmacological interventions in nursing facilities.
