Details Date
As a member of the Association Executive I have contributed to discussions leading to a consensus adopted by the European Delirium Association and the American Delirium Society (BMC Medicine 201412:141 DOI: 10.1186/s12916-014-0141-2) that with respect to "The DSM-5 criteria, level of arousal and delirium diagnosis: inclusiveness is safer". I was also part of an international panel of experts gathered to write a definitive report on the "Intensive Care Medicine Research Agenda on Delirium" for publication in INTENSIVE CARE MEDICINE. I am an editorial board member of 2 journals: Brain Behavior and Immunity. Journal of Neuroinflammation.
