Assistant professor of Medicine John D. Osborne, Ph.D., will be providing contributions to the R21 grant “Comprehensive Assessment of Delirium Risk due to Medications.” 

Delirium, also known as acute confusional state, affects up to 7 million hospitalized older adults annually and is associated with long-term declines in cognition and function. 

Osborne will be assisting with data cleaning and extraction as part of this grant. The secondary data analysis for this effort will apply machine learning data mining methods to a large electronic health record database, with over a decade of assessments that will examine the risk of delirium due to medication.
