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 delirium as a symptom of coronavirus and how this should be managed, delirium and dementia, delirium following surgery, delirium in the ICU and delirium at the end of life. There are also in depth sessions focusing on managing violent or aggressive behaviour in patients experiencing delirium and the link between delirium and pain.
"The conference will also reflect on implementation of the January 2023 update to the NICE Clinical Guideline on Delirium: prevention, diagnosis and management in hospital and long term care."
Delirium is preventable in 30% of cases.
NICE April 2023
"Be aware that people in hospital or long-term care may be at risk of delirium. This can have serious consequences (such as increased risk of dementia and/or death) and, for people in hospital, may increase their length of stay in hospital and their risk of new admission to long-term care."
NICE January 2023
