Ottawa is a dynamic city of more than one million people. Located in the province of Ontario, near the Quebec border, it’s a city steeped in culture and a place where you will hear English and French spoken on the streets. Here you can discover Canada’s proud heritage at impressive national sites and famous landmarks, including the Rideau Canal (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), and where you can spend much of your time exploring on foot.
At the heart of it all is the Ottawa Convention Centre, host of the 2013 CAGP Annual Scientific Meeting, Emerging Concepts in Geriatric Psychiatry on Wednesday, September 25. 2013.
Implications of the new DSM-5 for diagnosis in Geriatric Psychiatry
Benoit Mulsant, MD FRCPC
Advances in Theurapeutic Psychiatric Brain Stimulation – Implications for the field of Geriatric Psychiatry
Daniel Blumberger, MD FRCPC and Paul Lespérance, MD FRCPC
Many members have expressed concerns about the recent publication by the APA of the DSM-5. This year’s meeting will begin with a keynote presentation from Benoit Mulsant on the Implications of the new DSM-5 for diagnosis in Geriatric Psychiatry, in which Dr. Mulsant will highlight some of the recent changes in classification and discuss potential impacts on clinical care, communication, and research. Following his presentation there will be a series of concurrent symposia, interactive workshops, and paper presentations.
The day will end with a lively panel presentation and discussion on the Advances in Theurapeutic Psychiatric Brain Stimulation – Implications for the field of Geriatric Psychiatry with Daniel Blumberger and Paul Lespérance. The panel will present updated information about brain stimulation therapies including ECT, transcranial direct current stimulation, deep brain stimulation, and other novel approaches, with a specific focus on the relevance for clinicians dealing with severe mental illness in an aging population.
The CAGP Annual Scientific Meeting brings together participants from across Canada and provides an opportunity to network with colleagues and exchange ideas while gaining up-to-date knowledge on managing key issues in seniors’ mental health.
