Talks and Q&A with Prof Brian Green and Aoife Sweeney from our Northern Ireland Research Network.
This session featured talks exploring ongoing research being conducted across Northern Ireland, and more specifically about delirium that can develop after surgery and how it could be linked with dementia.

Dr Emma Cunningham is a Lecturer and researcher based at Queen’s University Belfast. She studies delirium and how it is linked with changes in memory and thinking, and with dementia. In her talk, she will discuss her work researching delirium that develops after surgery, exploring how it impacts people’s memory and thinking long-term, and the likely course their recovery may follow.
