The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists (RANZCP) 2020 Congress is organized by WALDRONSMITH Management and will be held from May 17 - 21, 2020 at Hotel Grand Chancellor Hobart, Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. The Theme of this Conference is 'Influencing and being influenced by the world around us'. Description: The Congress offers an opportunity for you to explore innovation, research, clinical practice and hear from opinion leaders through the broader lens of how we influence and connect to the world around us. The last decade has seen psychiatrists become less visible as the number of non-medical clinicians have grown. Yet, psychiatrists, by virtue of the depth and breadth of our psychiatric expertise, are ideally placed to participate in public discourse, policy reform and service development to address the needs of people who live with mental illness. Psychiatrists need to stand up and be influential. In doing so, we need to be aware of and understand the influence of the world around us, and the impact of different generational attitudes, socio-political issues, religious, moral and cultural changes. Though superficial, they change the neural substrate of our experience and being. The importance of understanding the complex interactions of our inner and outer worlds has never been more important and forms the basis for the theme of the 2020 Congress. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
