The annual meeting of the European Delirium Association (EDA) gathers Europe’s expertise in delirium and will take place on Thursday 1th and Friday 2th of November in the Winkel van Sinkel in Utrecht (The Netherlands). About 250 leading clinicians and researchers with expertise in delirium are expected.
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.
