Postoperative delirium is common in the elderly and is associated with a significant increase
in mortality, complications, length of hospital stay and admission in long care facility.
Several interventions have proved their effectiveness to prevent it but their combination
within a multifaceted intervention needs to be assessed using rigorous methodology based on
randomized study design. CONFUCIUS trial aims to measure the impact of a multifaceted program
on the prevention of postoperative delirium in elderly.
