Ninety people have already registered for the 3rd National Review Course in Geriatric Psychiatry. We are especially pleased that this course was awarded the 2014 CPA-COPCE award for “Most Outstanding Continuing Education Activity in Psychiatry in Canada.” Over the two days just before the CCSMH-CAGP Annual Scientific Meeting, 16 speakers will be covering major topics in geriatric psychiatry chosen based on a needs assessment of last year’s attendees and a survey of the full CAGP membership. So far, every year for the course has had some “favourite” repeats as well as new presentations: Day 1 will focus on diagnosis and treatment of delirium, dementia and depression, as well as assessment of capacity; Our international guest speaker will be Dr. Charles F. Reynolds III from the University of Pittsburgh discussing the topic of Sleep Disorders in the Elderly. Day two will feature morning sessions on antidepressants and antipsychotics, each with presentations geared to three different groups: psychiatrists/geriatricians, family physicians and allied-health professionals. The afternoon will include sessions on psychotherapy, changes with aging and sexuality.
