The Paediatric Mental Health Association invites trainees in Paediatrics, Psychiatry, General Practice, and Emergency Medicine to submit abstracts for our Annual Winter Meeting.
The meeting, taking place on the 23rd and 24th of January 2020, attracts speakers and delegates from a wide range of specialties to discuss the latest research and updates in Child Mental Health.
This year, for the first time, the meeting will feature a trainee-led poster session in which trainees can present their audits, research, or quality improvement projects related to child mental health. This is an excellent opportunity to showcase your work in the area of child mental health and to share best practice with interested professionals from around the country. There will also be an opportunity to give a five-minute oral presentation on Day Two of the meeting (Friday January 24th).
