Bridges Across Aging: meeting primary care needs through specialization

Consistent with IPA’s mission, in this meeting recent advances in the field of Psychogeriatrics, especially in the areas of understanding basic neurobiology, diagnostics, therapeutics and service development and delivery will be presented.
We encourage all of you to submit abstracts for the different sessions in order to promote improvements in the health and quality of life of people with mental health problems, their families and caregivers. Mild Cognitive Impairment, Dementia, Psychosis, Depression and Suicide in late life are other themes in discussion.
We are planning a comprehensive and stimulating program that will include plenary sessions, a number of symposia and workshops, as well as thematic oral sessions for new research, poster presentations and satellite symposia.

Who Should Attend
Family and general physicians, geriatricians, neurologists, nurses, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, and other health care professionals with a special interest in the mental health of the elderly should plan to attend this meeting.

IPA Regional Initiatives
This meeting provides a unique opportunity for the people of Iberolatinamerica, as opinion leaders, to come together in order to identify and implement areas for growth in this specific region -- where we share a common language.

IPA Shared Interest Groups (SIGs)
Also at the Lisbon meeting, IPA’s SIGs will gather to identify specific educational, clinical and research needs from the perspective of their professional communities. These distinctive forums are for Nurses, Occupational Therapists, Primary Care Physicians, Psychologists, and Social Workers to address their unique approaches to geriatric mental health, exchange ideas, and develop activities.
