CEDARTREE/NIDUS Delirium Boot Camp: Nov. 1-3, 2017
The annual Delirium Boot Camp began in 2013 through a K07 grant from the NIH to fund the Center of Excellence for Delirium in Aging: Research, Training and Educational Enhancement (CEDARTREE), with the goal of advancing research and training in delirium. Now in its 5th year, the Delirium Boot Camp will be co-hosted by CEDARTREE and NIDUS. The Chairs for this year’s event are Donna Fick, PhD, MSN, Pennsylvania State University, and Wes Ely, MD, MPH, Vanderbilt University, the NIDUS Mentorship Task Force Leaders. Other participating faculty will include Sharon Inouye, MD, MPH, Ed Marcantonio, MD, SM, Rich Jones, ScD, and Tom Travison, PhD, as well as a number of other respected guest speakers.
The CEDARTREE/NIDUS Delirium Boot Camp will take place on Nov. 1-3, 2017, in Boston, MA. It is open to researchers from any discipline who want to gain expertise in delirium research. The Boot Camp offers a mock grant review, in depth training on use of the CAM, and many other didactic sessions covering a wide range of topics relevant to delirium research. We are happy to announce that a limited number of travel awards will be available to participants this year.
Planning for this year’s Boot Camp is currently underway. All information for this year’s event, including application information, will be updated on this site when available. Please join our email list to receive announcements about this event.
