2013 Clinical Neurosciences Recordings

Conference Description (from the original conference brochure)

“The treatment of psychosis remains a challenge. However there are many new, exciting and very encouraging approaches to how we help people suffering from psychosis. This conference aims to help you better understand, identify and treat psychosis and its related diagnoses.  Our faculty will present on a wide range of topics from Dr. Ofer Agid from Toronto talking about early psychosis treatment to Dr. Sophia Vinogradov from San Francisco discussing cognitive training for the person with schizophrenia and Dr Herb Meltzer from Chicago describing new treatments for refractory schizophrenia. We will also be presenting promising new programs in BC with Dr. Randall White presenting the BC Psychosis Program which treats people from across BC and the PTOP program recently started in Fraser Health by Dr. Debbie Thompson. We know that by attending this conference you will come away better equipped to help treat your patients with psychosis and help them achieve better functional outcomes.”

This conference was held on March 8, 2013 (Fri) at the Morris J Wosk Centre for Dialogue, Vancouver, BC. Recordings of the presentations are below, with the exception of the PTOP program presentation by Dr. Debbie Thompson.
