Clinical Trial Summary

This research is being done to find out if patients and caregivers who use the iPREPARED mobile health technology experience less delirium, a type of acute confusion, and if they do experience delirium, the delirium will be less severe and distressful. iPREPARED prepares patients and caregivers on what to expect during their hospital stay and provides instructions and resources on how to use non-pharmacologic strategies like re-orientation, distraction techniques, and other activities to maintain their brain health during their hospital stay.


Clinical Trial Description

The purpose of this pilot study is to assess the feasibility, acceptability, and preliminary efficacy of the iPREPARED mobile health technology to reduce delirium incidence in a two-group, pilot randomized- controlled clinical trial. In the context of this intervention, the caregiver is defined as a patient-identified family member or friend that can accompany the patient in their hospital journey. Aim 1: Determine the feasibility, acceptability, and usability of the iPREPARED intervention for use by older hospitalized adults (>60yo) and their caregivers (patient-caregiver dyad). Aim 2: To estimate the effect size needed to reduce the incidence of delirium in participants using the iPREPARED intervention. Aim 3: Identify patient-caregiver reported strategies to improve the usability of the iPREPARED intervention. Secondary Outcomes: 1. Association between delirium incidence and self-rated health status (GSRH). 2. Association between delirium incidence, severity, and delirium-related distress (NCCN Distress thermometer) and resiliency (BRS resiliency scale). 3. Acute stress measured by the IPAT will be compared across the two groups. Acute stress measured by the Intensive Care Psychological Assessment Tool (IPAT) will be less in the intervention group. 4. Delirium-related distress will be analyzed across the two groups. Delirium-related distress measured by the NCCN Distress Thermometer will be less in the intervention group. 5. Plasma and serum biomarker differences between groups and between delirium/non- delirium cohort. 6. Clinical outcomes including adverse hospital events (falls, nosocomial infections, aspirations), length of hospital stay, discharge disposition, mortality and 30-day readmission rates will be collected and examined between groups: 1. Nosocomial infection is defined as a diagnosis not present on admission and occurred after 48 hours of hospital admission and includes UTI, Pneumonia, Decub ulcers, Cellulitis, CAUTI's and CLABSI's ;
