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.
