De Vere West One Conference Centre, London

Follow the conference on Twitter #NHSDelirium

“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........We will go further in improving the care we provide to people with dementia and delirium, whether they are in hospital or at home.”

NHS England February 2019

“Older people (and people with cognitive impairment, dementia, severe illness or a hip fracture) are more at risk of delirium. About 20–30% of people on medical wards in hospital have delirium. Between 10% and 50% of people who have surgery go on to develop delirium, varying on different types of surgery and settings. In long term care settings, its prevalence is under 20%.”

NHS England
