DGPPN Congress 2019

Wed. 27. Nov 2019 - Sat. 30. Nov 2019

Innovative research for person-centred psychiatry and psychotherapy We are currently seeing an immense increase in knowledge about the development, diagnosis and treatment of mental illness. This progress is putting new demands on professionals, service users and family carers to integrate this knowledge into diagnostic and therapeutic approaches and attitudes. The associated challenges are specific to psychiatry because no other medical discipline deals so comprehensively and holistically with the affected person and is thereby subject to such strong societal, political and social currents. Vigorous research into mental illness, a widespread disease of the 21st century, is key today and will continue to be so in the coming years.
  Where does psychiatry research stand today and how close are we to achieving individualised treatments? What new endpoints can be driving forces for new psychosocial and drug treatments? How can we succeed in strengthening the clinician scientist so that new procedures from the field of basic research are translated as quickly as possible from the laboratory to psychiatric and psychotherapeutic care? What are the opportunities and risks of new, digital options for diagnostics and treatment? The DGPPN Congress 2019 will address these future-oriented issues under the guiding theme “Innovative research for person-centred psychiatry and psychotherapy”. Placing a clear focus on the patient means that, to meet the specific needs of people with mental illness, we have to systematically involve both patients and family carers in research. To further improve our understanding of service users’ needs in the future, we must realise the full potential of established and newer disciplines, such as the social neurosciences and psychotherapy research, and combine them into integrative models. These and other hot topics from psychiatry and psychotherapy will be discussed and closely examined by specialists, service users and family carers at the DGPPN Congress in Berlin at the end of November. You can look forward to a scientific programme in a class of its own, with national and international researchers, experts from the health care sector and renowned figures from politics and society. We look forward to welcoming you to the DGPPN Congress 2019. With best regards, Andreas Heinz
President of the DGPPN Read more about the congress here.

HTAi Annual Meeting

Fri. 01. Jun 2018 - Tue. 05. Jun 2018

Strengthening the Evidence-to-Action Connection With terms such as “fake news”, “alternative facts”, and “post-truth” now in common parlance, it is more important than ever that researchers, policymakers, health care practitioners, technology developers, patients, and the public affirm their commitment to action based on evidence and collaborative approaches that will strengthen the evidence-to-action connection. The HTAi 2018 Annual meeting will provide an unparalleled opportunity to consider, debate and clarify the role of health technology assessment (HTA) in the health care ecosystem.   With three plenary sessions that all support the conference’s overarching theme of Strengthening the Evidence-to-Action Connection, the HTAi 2018 Annual Meeting will be a must-attend event for those in the global HTA community to consider and debate: how HTA needs to change its approach to generating, synthesizing and presenting evidence in order to remain relevant in a rapidly changing world; what is required to enable the implementation of evidence into evidence-informed policies and practices, and what can be done to strengthen and accelerate the evidence-to-action connection. As the leading global discussion platform for all stakeholders engaged in the efficient production and use of HTAs in decision-making, HTAi supports and promotes the development, communication, understanding and use of HTA around the world as a scientifically-based and interdisciplinary means of informing decision making on the use of effective technologies and the efficient use of resources in health care. HTAi welcomes all stakeholders – patients/consumers, health care providers, academic researchers, HTA agencies, payers, policy makers, industry – to join us.

Implementation Science Conference - 3rd edition

Fri. 08. Feb 2019

How do you implement an intervention in all primary schools in a country successfully? What actions do you undertake to implement guidelines effectively? How do you ensure that a particular change leads to the desired result? It doesn´t matter in what kind of branch you work in or what kind of work you do we have to deal with the changes that come from implementation on a daily basis. Carefully studying the implementation, execution, monitoring and safeguarding of changes has been proven to be of a major influence on the
effectiveness of changes in policies. Anyone working in public administration knows that creating an effective intervention is not enough to achieve something in real life. The intervention should also be effectively implemented and that is often quite a task and not as straightforward as one would
think. It is helpful to learn from colleagues and implementation researchers about their experiences with regard to effective implementation. This is why the Dutch Implementation Collective (NIC), the Trimbos Institute for Mental Health and Addiction and the Amsterdam UMC will organise another
edition of the Implementation Conference on Friday 8 February 2019 in Utrecht. Call for workshops
We invite you to submit workshop proposals to be held during the 3rd Implementation Science
Conference on 8 February 2019. Please check the Conference website for more information. Target audience
Researchers and practicioners within the field of public policy, behavioural science, the
medical field and those specifically interested in implementation science. Fees and Registration

HTAi Annual Meeting

Sat. 15. Jun 2019 - Wed. 19. Jun 2019

HTA beyond 2020: Ready for the New Decade? One year ahead of the end of a number of prominent HTA strategies and projects, the course will (and has to) be set for future development of HTA worldwide in 2020 and beyond. Thus, the preliminary results will fuel the debate about the future of HTA. Besides many important strategies and projects dealing with HTA there are some prominent ones like, HTAi’s own strategy paper, accompanied by Horizon 2020, the main research program of the EU Commission, and the EUnetHTA Joint Action 3 project, the proposal of the EU-Commission for a regulation on HTA in Europe after 2020. Moreover, other key scientific programs like IC-Permed, the international consortium for personalized medicine, will be more important than ever. The discussion about subsequent strategies, projects, developments and changes as a result of these projects will be starting in 2019. Therefore, the HTAi Annual Meeting provides an ideal presentation and discussion platform for opportunities, emerging challenges and possible threats. Trends for harmonization and standardization are confronted by progressive digitalization, disruptive innovations, and the questioning of established evidence requirements. The European proposal for “HTA after 2020” might stand exemplarily for the important international strategic efforts to strengthen HTA for the new decade. Furthermore, globalization takes place and HTA becomes much more important for emerging markets. 2019 is the perfect time to tie this “varicolored bouquet” of important HTA developments together, looking into the future and asking: HTA beyond 2020: Ready for a New Decade? https://www.htai2019.org/

19th WPA World Congress of Psychiatry

Wed. 21. Aug 2019 - Sat. 24. Aug 2019

Psychiatry and mental health narratives have changed extensively over the last centuries. Today, treatment and recovery of mental disorders go hand in hand with promotion and prevention and there is an increased interest in rehabilitation and psycho-social interventions. Yet this was not always the case – these fields of research and intervention have had intricate connections either running in parallel or in confluence but also sometimes in conflict. Bound in the history of Psychiatry is a search for an identity which has been complex and ultimately was reached by a compromise between empirical and non-empirical vectors coming from neurobiological, psychological and social inputs. Today these have informed public health policies which all aim at the same goal – reaching the highest possible mental wellbeing. Please join us in Lisbon, Portugal, 21-24 August 2019 to examine and discuss all these crucial issues in psychiatry and mental health, listening to numerous keynote lectures that convoy our present scientific and technological revolution. Certainly, you will profit from up-to-date research data, the best lectures from experts in all fields, a high quality scientific content, interaction between professionals, users and carers, and relevant peer-to-peer networking. Furthermore, whether your contribution is in the field of psychopathology, biologic psychiatry, pharmacotherapy, psychiatric training, psychotherapy, social psychiatry, rehabilitation, prevention or services organization it will surely be vital to further our knowledge. Lisbon is considered among the most beautiful cities in Europe surprising all newcomers and affectionately saluting frequent visitors. You have the chance to enjoy Portugal which has been consistently, over the last years, an award-winning travel destination for its amazing historical patrimony, it’s culture, natural wonders and the warm-welcoming Portuguese people. In our Congress you will find a kind-hearted reception, informed scientific discussions, great networking prospects and enjoyable cultural and gastronomical events. We look forward to seeing you in Lisbon in the summer of 2019.   Read more about the congress here.
