Welcome to the new face of the IRPB.  We have embraced technology and are going green with an app-based conference this year.  Simply scan the codes on the left to download the app.

All the conference information will be available through the app along with a host of new features.  You can create your own schedule, avoiding conflicts, contact other delegates and answer surveys, all directly through the app.  We hope you find it an advance over the old paper-based system and enjoy the new experience.

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

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.
