2015 IPA International Congress in Berlin, Germany, 13-16 October 2015

09 Jul 2015 3:55 PM | CAGP (Administrator)


 Make your plans now for “IPA’s Oktoberfest,” that is the 2015 IPA

International Congress which will be held 13-16 October in Berlin, Germany.  With the theme, “Balancing Cure with Care: Advances in Late Life Mental Health,” the program will discuss balancing races for the cure against the undeniable obligation we have as mental health professionals to care for our patients and their families.  This issue is more important today than in the past.  In fact, increasingly care and cure are blended in our professional lives such that the most effective interventions of today combine cure and care oriented approaches.  The International Psychogeriatric Association (IPA) and our congress will address this compelling issue as well as the full spectrum of mental health issues for the elderly …all issues, all disciplines, all around the world.

Here is an overview of the 2015 IPA International Congress, 13-16 October 2015:

 PRE-CONGRESS PROGRAMS • Tuesday, 13 October 2015

Start your congress experience off with a one-day focused program on one of these three important topics:


 Imaging and Biomarkers Workshop

Imaging is increasingly being used by clinicians to enhance accuracy of diagnosis and to give important information regarding co-morbid pathologies which have an impact on management and prognosis. Imaging changes are increasingly entering clinical diagnostic criteria, and consensus clinical criteria for all main subtypes of dementia now include information about imaging changes.  In addition, many clinical guidelines for dementia emphasize the need for informed, appropriate application of different imaging modalities in varying clinical situations.

 This extremely successful workshop has been presented at IPA meetings and conferences around the world nearly every year since its first appearance in Amsterdam in November 2007.  In Berlin, the workshop has been updated to include the latest technological advances including biomarkers, and will be presented by international experts including co-chairs John O’Brien (United Kingdom) and Philip Scheltens (The Netherlands), Klaus Ebmeier (United Kingdom), Karl Herholz (United Kingdom), Evelien Lemstra (The Netherlands), Leonardo Pantoni (Italy), Zuzana Walker (United Kingdom), and Mike Wattjes (The Netherlands).

 IPA is also very pleased to announce that GE Healthcare will continue to serve as sponsor of the IPA Imaging and Biomarkers Workshop and we thank them for their efforts to improve care through education.

2nd International Conference on Capacity

IPA has long recognized capacity as an issue with clinical, ethical, medico-legal and human rights relevance to clinicians across a range of disciplines working in old age psychiatry.  Building on the success of the first conference last year in Hong Kong, the upcoming 2nd Annual International Conference on Capacity promises to once again showcase novel plenaries and free communication sessions addressing a breadth of issues.  This year’s theme, ”The science of decision-making” includes topics ranging from will-making to awareness in dementia and supported decision-making  and will be presented by several IPA leaders in this field including chair Carmelle Peisah (Aus Scheltens (The Netherlands), Klaus Ebmeier (United Kingdom), Karl Herholz (United Kingdom), Evelien Lemstra (The Netherlands), Leonardo Pantoni (Italy), Zuzana Walker (United Kingdom), and Mike Wattjes (The Netherlands).
