Overly stringent inclusion criteria affecting external validity
|Number of systematic reviews included
|Summary of Findings
|The author highlights that the review excluded individuals with dementia or stroke, those who had undergone neurosurgery or trauma, and those in nursing home and other nonhospital settings (e.g., rehabilitation, hospice, outpatient, emergency department). The author questions the validity of this decision as these groups are most at risk of developing delirium.
|Did the article find that the problem(s) led to qualitative changes in interpretation of the results?
|Are the methods of the article described in enough detail to replicate the study?
