Robert de Santis, wins award at ADS Conference in June 2018

Robert de Santis is a second year medical student at Western University and he has won the award for Best International poster at the ADS conference in June 2018.

The title of the poster is “Outcomes of delirium and subsyndromal delirium in older medical inpatients”.

We prospectively assessed medical inpatients for delirium and subsyndromal delirium for a week during hospitalisation and looked at outcomes such as mortality and institutionalisation on discharge and at 6 months. We found that those with SSD and delirium had worse outcomes than those with no delirium at all. This is important because it highlights that delirium is an illness with a spectrum of severity and even those with mild symptoms may have adverse outcomes.
