The 27th EPA 2019 congress in Warsaw - Poland
Psychiatry in Transition: Towards New Models, Goals and Challenges
Transition also involves the need to face challenges: lack of resources; inadequate personnel training for the implementation of new models and paradigms; the crisis of traditional concepts and organisation of families and communities; transcultural issues related to mass displacement; problematic internet use; and poor investments in research, provide good examples of the most challenging aspects of the present transition.
We feel confident that the EPA 2019 congress will help all of us to adopt new models and to meet the challenges of new research findings for the benefit of our patients. A special focus of the congress will be the update of Evidence-based medicine in psychopharmacology, implementation of community-based mental health systems, e-mental health applications, and prevention programmes.
