DECLARED 2020 postponed to September 2021
Due to the global pandemic and continuing restrictions on travel and gatherings, we have decided to postpone the Australasian Delirium Association's biennial conference. Regretfully this at a time when it has never been so clear how important and challenging it is to recognise, prevent and manage this common and devastating complication in older and critically ill patients.
So now we look forward to welcoming our delirium community to the DECLARED conference in sunny Brisbane, 8-10 September 2021 in our world class Brisbane Conference and Exhibition Centre. The conference committee remain committed to delivering an engaging, multidisciplinary program exploring “Delirium: Past, Present and Future”, and sharing the latest advances in delirium research, care and education from Australia and the world.
We greatly value the enthusiasm already demonstrated by our many speakers, registrants and abstract submitters, and look forward to your participation in 2021. Please stay in touch with our conference plans through our website www.declared2020.com and social media #declared2020.
