Intervention Studies for Delirium: the State of the Science
Galton Lecture Theatre (Room 115) |
1-19 Torrington Place | London | WC1E 7HB | United Kingdom
Professor Marcantonio, Associate Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School
Delirium is a frequent, serious and under recognised problem affecting older hospitalised patients. Despite being associated with poor longer-term outcomes, including death and institutionalisation, delirium remains disproportionately ignored relative to impact.
UCLPartners (dementia theme) has initiated a quality improvement programme to improve the care of people with dementia in general hospitals. It is designed around a “communities of practice” approach achieving a broad consensus across hospitals in central, north and east London. Common themes were agreed: a key one being improving the management of delirium.
Professor Marcantonio, an international expert, will give an update on intervention research in this complex field.
This is a Joint UCL Partners, UCL Centre for Ageing and Mental Health Sciences and Imperial College Seminar.
