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.

European Delirium Association (EDA) 
The European Delirium Association 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.
