Australasian Delirium Association

About us


Vision statement 

The Australasian Delirium Association (ADA) is committed to advancing research and knowledge about delirium. Our purpose is to improve the care, health and outcomes of people at risk of, with, or recovering from delirium. We aim to promote better understanding of delirium through leadership, education, support, resources, research and partnerships. 

Our areas of interest

The ADA was formed by a group of passionate advocates from multidisciplinary backgrounds. We want to bring together available scientific evidence for best practice, and concentrate disparate efforts.

We want to learn more about delirium from all perspectives, including: prevention, causes, early identification, accurate diagnosis, management and impact on people affected by it. Most importantly, we must facilitate translation from evidence into real-world practice.

Our activities will spread greater awareness of delirium both within the medical arena and the public, and help to lift the standards of delirium care in all settings: hospital, aged care, or community.

Our activities

Regular meetings are held every two years, and we invite all health care professionals with an interest in delirium to attend. The 2016 meeting will be in Sydney,  allowing investigators and health care professionals the opportunity for peer review and networking. 

The ADA website is a collaborative forum for sharing local practice guidelines, research in progress updates, information for patients and their carers, resources for health care staff and links to other relevant sites. If you have material that you wish to post, please contact us at:admin@delirium.org.au 

We liaise with the European Delirium Association and American Delirium Society, promote their regular conference meetings, and welcome their members to our meetings.
