Delirium is common among intensive care unit (ICU) patients; studies showed that delirium is linked to poor outcomes. Few studies have discussed delirium in the Arabic-speaking patients' population. The Saudi Critical Care Trials Group (SCCTG) is a leading entity for research and quality at ICU in Saudi Arabia. The SCCTG has worked on advancing delirium prevention and management by establishing multiple quality improvement projects as well as conducting research. The aim of this review is to highlight the effort of the SCCTG to improve delirium care at the ICU in Saudi hospitals.
