If you play a role with children or youth who experience these types of healthcare concerns, we invite you to attend this year’s Medical Psychiatry Alliance Annual Conference on Oct. 5, 2016, hosted by The Hospital for Sick Children. Be a part of defining what successful collaborative care looks like. In order to make a difference, everyone needs to work together.
Conference participants will have opportunities to:
- learn with and from children/youth and their families about their experiences
- participate in discussions about what successful collaborative approaches look like
- learn about innovative models of collaboration and other local, provincial and national initiatives
- network with other participants over lunch and the afternoon break
The Medical Psychiatry Alliance (MPA), is a collaborative partnership, the first-of-its-kind in Canada, whose goal is to transform the delivery of mental health services for patients who experience co-existing mental and physical illnesses, through integrated inter-professional clinical, education and research activities. Follow us on Twitter @MedPsychNews or visit our website for more information at http://www.medpsychalliance.ca.
The 2016 MPA Annual Conference will include a poster session focusing on children and youth with co-existing physical and mental health conditions to share knowledge about the work being conducted across the child and youth healthcare system and to promote opportunities for collaboration. A list of authors for these posters on display is available here.
