European Delirium Association 2018

Welcome on the website for the European Delirium Association annual meeting 2018!

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.

The European Delirium Association (EDA) was founded in  the mid-2000s by an enthusiastic group of practitioners and researchers, having realised that there was much work to be done in understanding the (pathophysiology, phenomenology and aetiology) of this often under-recognised, yet severely debilitating condition. And that benefit to the patient could only be achieved by transcending traditional borders between professions and specialties. EDA has yearly scientific meetings, and in 1 and 2 November 2018 we welcome you to Utrecht, The Netherlands!
