Engage the experts. Get your questions answered.
This psychiatry conference examines the latest research and treatment advances across dozens of mental health conditions. It offers in-depth information that is important for all mental health and primary care settings. Topics include ADHD, anxiety, bipolar disorder, depression, OCD, psychosis, PTSD, substance use disorders, and much more.
In every session, our faculty share any data from new clinical trials. They match it up against prior data and discuss what the changes mean. They also examine standards of care and share innovative ways to make care better. The agenda touches on many complex topics in mental health. Managing side effects, drug interactions, natural medications, combining pharmacologic and psychosocial treatments, and much more.
Most important of all, our faculty focus on how to translate all these insights into your daily practice. This empowers you to optimize your care for patients with psychiatric conditions. That makes our event ideal for professionals in psychiatry, primary care, psychology, and nursing.
Take advantage of this chance to meet experts and get a personal level of guidance. You can ask questions during panel discussions and discuss ideas face-to-face afterwards. There are also Curbside Consultation hours when psychiatry experts are available to address specific clinical challenges.
