Delirium Prevention, Assessment and Effective Management

Calendars: UK.

Monday 23 Nov 2020

West One De Vere, London

This conference focuses on the prevention, assessment and management of people with delirium.  Through national updates and practical case studies the conference will equip you to spread the message that delirium is preventable, and develop your skills in the recognition, assessment and management of delirium. The conference will include case study sessions focusing on delirium and dementia, delirium following surgery, delirium in the ICU and delirium at the end of life.

“One in eight hospital patients is affected by delirium, which can make people unsteady on their feet, increases the risk of developing dementia and can result in longer hospital stays or admission to a care home.”

NHS England February 2019

“Delirium is a common and potentially serious medical condition that can affect the elderly, the frail, the sick, the cognitively impaired – but more generally: everyone – given “stressing” events. These may include – among others – infections, operations, change in  or withdrawal  from  medication, sensory deprivation  or even simply removal from one’s familiar environment such as hospitalization. Delirium is a state of acute confusion.”

European Delirium Association 2019
