2016 Pre-Congress Workshops IPA International Congress San Francisco

Capacity is pleased to announce the attendance at the 2016 IPA International Congress at San Francisco on Tuesday, 6 September

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. Originally championed by Sanford Finkel (IPA Past President), this issue has been garnering support through the efforts of both the IPA Capacity Shared Interest Forum and the Taskforce for Testamentary Capacity and Undue Influence. Growing interest resulted in the 1st International Conference on Capacity in Hong Kong (September 2014). Hosted by Capacity Australia in conjunction with the Hong Kong Psychogeriatric Association, the conference attracted 6o delegates from 8 countries (visit www.capacityaustralia.org.au for more).

Building on that success, the 2nd International Conference on Capacity, convened by IPA in conjunction with Capacity Australia was held at the 2015 IPA International Congress in Berlin. This year’s Conference on Capacity promises to once again showcase novel plenaries addressing a breadth of issues. This year’s theme is: risky business and other rights.
