IRPB 2015 Programme

Progdocs

The main theme of the conference will be to consider the potential changes happening to psychiatric diagnosis as we stand on the dawn of the genetic mapping age.  A predisposition to develop psychiatric illness can be measured, and society has to decide what to do next - to prevent with treatment, or to wait for the potential first episode to develop.  

Mass-scale screening has implications for psychiatry beyond psychiatrists - it will require closer involvement of primary care and maybe other services... there are health economic, insurance and other cost elements to also take into account.

These topics will be addressed with streams taking place during the conference -

A 'Psychiatrist Understanding and Treatment' stream

A 'Philosophical, Cost and Societal' stream

An 'Implications for Primary Care' stream

It is anticipated that the conference will be suitable for Psychiatrists and Mental Health workers, Primary Care physicians (especially those with a particular interest in Mental Health), and Policy & Health Administration specialists.  All delegates will be able to attend all sessions.

IRPB 2015 will cover the following topics:

Aetiology, Pathology and Neuroimaging

Genetics and Pathogenesis

Diagnosis, Differential and Dual Diagnosis, Epidemiology

Clinical presentation & symptomatology

Co-morbidity & Added Issues such as Lifetime aspects, QoL and Suicidality

Individual patient treatment, but also Policy Implications, Health Economics, and Health Provision at a Societal level

Conditions covered include:

Primary Psychoses & Psychotic symptoms (eg. Schizophrenia, Schizoaffective Disorders & Psychotic symptoms involved in Bipolar Disorders)

Secondary Psychoses & Psychotic symptoms due to Epilepsy, Dementia/Alzheimers, Parkinsons, Infections

Difficulties with Mood such as Impulsivity, Mania, Agitation, Anxieties, Depression, Cyclothymia and Hyperthymia.
