Summary: For older patients in palliative care for a life-limiting illness, management of delirium with supportive care and individualized treatment of delirium precipitants may lead to improved delirium scores and fewer extra-pyramidal side effects compared to management with supportive care plus haloperidol or risperidone, and management with supportive care alone may lead to improved overall survival compared to management with supportive care plus haloperidol.
