Alasdair MacLullich’s main research interests are in the assessment and management of delirium, and he also works on blood, CSF and neuroimaging biomarkers of delirium. He is the main author of the 4AT delirium assessment tool. He co-chaired the SIGN Guidelines Group which produced the ‘Risk Reduction and Management of Delirium’ guideline, published in March 2019.

He has also worked on cluster randomised controlled trials delivered using electronic health record methodology in cardiovascular medicine.
