PREvention Decline in Older cardiac Surgery patients (PREDOCS)

In a stepped wedge research design models are developed for measuring the effect of the preadmission nursing PREDOCS consult for individual patients, waiting for a hospital admission with cardiac surgery.

With the earlier evidence based developed nursing PREDOCS consult the patient with family is empowered to optimize its health condition in the waiting time for the hospital admission, preventing them from experiencing one of the frequently occuring postoperative complications (delirium, depression, pressure ulcer or infection).
