Frontiers in Psychiatric Treatment – Schizophrenia and related Psychoses
Schizophrenia is a severe mental illness, which has a devastating effect on our patients’ lives. Over the past few decades, the scientific understanding of schizophrenia has increased dramatically.
We are delighted to welcome our eminent speakers, who will outline the latest research, with a specific focus on clinical application.
The content of the day is relevant to all professionals in mental health regardless of specialty, and promises to be a lively and interactive day, with plenty of time to network with the speakers and other colleagues.
