Network for Investigation of Delirium: Unifying Scientists
Delirium CAMpaign 
NIDUS is kicking off a Delirium CAMpaign with two new CAM focused blogs and the new Ultra-Brief CAM! 
Screening for Delirium with the Confusion Assessment Method (CAM)
Drs. Inouye, Jones, and Marcantonio teamed up to provide an overview of the CAM’s uses, the current CAM adaptions (such as the CAM-ICU, FAM-CAM, and more), and the future of the CAM.

The Ultra-Brief Confusion Assessment Method (UB-CAM): A New Approach for Rapid Diagnosis of CAM-defined Delirium
To address the lack of a quick, standardized approach for rating the diagnostic algorithm, Drs. Inouye, Jones, Marcantonio, and Fick created the Ultra-Brief CAM (UB-CAM). The UB-CAM accurately identifies CAM-defined delirium and can be completed in about 1 minute!

Congratulations NIDUS Year 5 Pilot Grant Awardees! 
The NIDUS Pilots and Innovation Task Force announces two new pilot grants to advance innovation in delirium research. The goal is to provide funding for investigation into innovative areas of delirium research and support research on priority areas. From a pool of over 40 applications, these two grants have been selected for funding during Year 5. 
NIDUS is thrilled to partner with a new group of researchers to further the field of delirium research. We look forward to sharing news about their studies and outcomes.
