In DAI’s “A Meeting of the Minds” monthly Webinar series, we feature people who have unique perspectives on dementia and who challenge the status quo; our speakers are always highly regarded international academics, clinicians, service providers or keynote speakers.
In December, we host two celebration events, rather than having an educational speaker, and in January, our Cafe Le Brain is usually the celebration of DAI’s ‘Birthday’, although we occasionally host a Webinar in January as well.
Monthly webinars focus on a variety of topics, and provide an opportunity for people with dementia to connect with the wider community of those living with the disease or working in the area of dementia, and vice versa. To participate, you need an Internet connection; a webcam and microphone will ensure a fuller experience.
We invite you to join us for our November 2020 “Meeting Of The Minds” Webinar, Delirium: Cause for Concern?, presented by Dr. Shibley Rahman.
- Wednesday, November 25, 2020 (USA/CA/UK/EU)
- Thursday, November 26, 2020 (AU/NZ/Asia)
- Please note this is one event, set in a number of different time zones.
About the Webinar: Delirium is a common phenomenon in individuals with pre-existing dementia. It is now thought even possibly to accelerate cognitive decline. Known for its abrupt effect on individuals, as a sudden change in personality and behaviour, with marked cognitive change in attention, it is distressing to watch as a carer, and distressing to experience as a patient. It is important to identify, however, as it is a significant common medical emergency. It is important to be cognisant about its existence in all care settings, including domiciliary and residential care. This seminar will consider what delirium is, how and why it should be identified, what are its consequences, as well as considering contemporary aspects of care and research. It will also consider its wider significance in the COVID-19 pandemic.
