The first in a series of a three-part U13 Bedside to Bench Conference, “Delirium in Older Adults: Finding Order in the Disorder,” is scheduled for February 9-11, 2014, in Bethesda, MD. Conference attendees will have the opportunity to learn about cutting edge research developments, participate in the creation of recommendations for future research, and to network with colleagues and leaders in the field.

The topics of the remaining conferences in the series are Sleep Problems and Urinary Incontinence. They will be held in 2015 and 2016 respectively. The mission of these conferences remains to heighten research attention on geriatrics issues that are of pressing clinical concern and have the potential to greatly improve clinical care or prevention for older adults. The topics Delirium, Sleep Problems and Urinary Incontinence are being addressed since these common geriatric syndromes share many characteristics and have not yet been covered in this series.
