Event Information

This conference will take place online where we hope to replicate the same learning experience as a face to face conference, just without the travelling and with the added benefit of recordings of the course. Participants will be able to ask questions throughout using the 'chat' function.  

Please note that only those registered in advance for the event will be able to view content afterwards on demand. 

In order to allow us time to add everyone to the online platform, booking will close at 5pm on Tuesday 15 September. On the day bookings will not be possible. 

This online conference will give an overview of a variety of online platforms that you can use in your practice, including Zoom, Attend Anywhere, AccuRx, ProReal and Microsoft Teams. The conference will open with an address from RCPsych President Dr Adrian James and will close with a debate on the motion 'Now that technology enables us to work from home, can we be effective professionals with shirts, brains & shorts?'
