EMAHSN Event: Delirium – Dementia’s Deadly Twin

Monday 25th January 2016 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

 

This interactive event explores delirium in its broadest sense – establishing ways to place delirium awareness on a par with dementia awareness as a public and professional health theme.

Dementia is associated with a 10-fold risk of developing delirium. 80% of people who live in 24-hour care settings will have dementia, many of whom will be undiagnosed, putting this population at very high risk of developing delirium.

Delegates will:

  • Have an opportunity to work with experts on understanding the problem
  • Share best practice with colleagues from around the region
  • Help to scope the future work programme for the Patient Safety Collaborative
  • Network with individuals working in the same clinical areas.
