What a honor to be invited to Florida by the founder of Sepsis Alliance Dr, Carl Flatley on a once in a life time fishing trip. I am so excited to be able to have the strength and the determination to fulfill this life long dream. Thank you Dr Carl Flatley for inviting me and hope that together we can bring awareness to Sepsis.
Once again I am honored to be a part of such a wonderful opportunity to help others with some of the struggles they have while in the hospital. I had lots of delirium while being intubated for approximately 25 days and none were pleasant experiences. I look forward to traveling to Boston so that I may help others and explain to the caregivers what to expect. As you can read below I have been invited to go to Boston, Massachusetts so that I may help others understand the outcomes of delirium.
We would like to invite you and your wife to be interviewed at the 2019 American Delirium Society workshop on Sunday, June 16th, 2019 in Boston, Massachusetts. The workshop theme is "Delirium Recognition and Reduction: Bench to Bedside Considerations" and our aim is to provide an interactive and engaging learning experience for clinicians and researchers alike to develop skills and knowledge regarding delirium assessment, prevention, and management.
We would like to end the workshop with an interview of someone who has experienced delirium. The goal of the 45-minute interview is for workshop attendees to understand the delirium experience and it’s long term effects. You would get a few minutes to describe your hospitalization and I would ask you questions which you will receive ahead of time. You will also get questions from the audience.
I was just recently named International ICU hero of The Year by the Society of Critical Care Medicine.
