Call for submissions: Innovative Ideas in Digital Psychiatry

We are delighted to say that this will be a fantastic opportunity to socialise, network and gain some insights into all things digital in the world of Psychiatry from a fantastic and diverse range of speakers.

We are also keen to hear from you and inviting submissions for any ideas on contemporary ways to use digital technology in the field of Psychiatry. We are looking for proposals that could be a novel way of using technology to aid diagnosis, or deliver treatment, or anything in between! Any submissions with a QI or research idea or project are also welcome, but we encourage proposals with broad ideas on using digital technologies within the practice of psychiatry. Special merit will be given for creative ideas and formats, unlike typical academic conferences.

This is an excellent opportunity for trainees to showcase experience on their portfolio.

So, put on your thinking hats and you might just stumble upon the next big innovation in the ongoing process of digital transformation in mental health!

What is Pecha-Kucha style of presentation?

A Pecha-Kucha presentation is a format that uses 20 slides or images that are displayed for 20 seconds each . The name Pecha-Kucha comes from a Japanese word meaning ‘chit chat’. The slides will move automatically as the presenter is speaking. This format ensures that the speaker is concise, keeps the presentation moving, and gets through all of their content. It is a fun way to share your ideas with others.
