On behalf of the Ontario Psychiatric Association, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the “2021 OPA Expert Series: Challenging Diagnoses”. This series of three interactive seminars approaches familiar diagnoses with a modern lens — recognizing the need for research and mental health care to appreciate sex and gender considerations, and the need for clinicians to be competent in using digital tools and providing virtual care.
We are grateful for the support of our presenters, who are leaders and innovators in their fields, and invite you to review the program overview below.
The OPA’s traditional Annual Conference has been reorganized to bring you compelling learning in a safe format during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Each of these seminars aims to bring in opportunities to learn something new, with ample time for discussions and reflections. We welcome you to join us over three sessions during the winter months, without having to leave your home or office.
Come to learn, come to share, come to connect! Ensure your OPA membership is up-to-date to ensure you receive a discounted registration rate.
