University of Birmingham 

Registration is now closed - please email for any queries

The European Delirium Association is excited to announce the 2023 Annual Meeting at the University of Birmingham, UK.  This is a global conference on delirium, covering state of the art delirium research and clinical practice across multiple disciplines.  

The theme of this year’s meeting is “Reconstructing delirium by assembling expertise”. 

We have invited world leaders in delirium and allied fields, to share their expertise and how it might be applied to further our understanding, and thus management of delirium.  This promises to be an exciting and stimulating programme, including many experts who have not previously spoken at EDA meetings.  The programme also reflects the range of medical professionals who are involved in delirium research and clinical care.  The meeting will allow delegates space to learn from other research and clinical disciplines and reflect on how this new knowledge can be applied to delirium.  The main conference will run on 7th and 8th September.

  • Pathophysiology Symposium: a symposium held jointly with the Institute of Inflammation and Ageing at the University of Birmingham titled “Ageing and inflammatory mechanisms in the pathophysiology of delirium” will provide a forum to share state of the art discovery science related to delirium.
