Design: Multiple‐case study. Methods: The model of Care Partner Engagement was selected as theoretical frame ‐ work. Eight cases will comprise an older adult hospitalized a family caregiver and a ward nurse. They will be recruited with a non‐probability sampling on two orthopae ‐ dic surgery wards in two hospitals. Semi‐structured interviews with participants will be audiotaped. Sociodemographic data will be collected. These data, researcher field notes and interview transcripts will be subjected to within‐ and across‐case thematic analysis. Regional ethics committee approved the study protocol in August 2018. Discussion: The study will allow surgical nursing teams to gain a better understanding of the issues and possibilities regarding family caregiver integration in delirium prevention care for older adults.
