Hamad Medical Corp (HMC) has invited abstract submissions from experts in the field of mental health for the 6th Qatar International Mental Health Conference.
Abstract submissions close on September16.
The conference will be held at the Hilton Hotel Doha from November 30 to December 2.
The event will bring together policy and decision makers, researchers, clinicians, students and other stakeholders to share work in the areas of mental health diagnostic and therapeutic strategies.
Dr Suhaila Ghuloum, senior consultant psychiatrist at HMC’s Mental Health Service and the Conference Organising Committee chairperson, explained that the conference is an important event which provides an ideal platform for peer-to-peer learning and networking.
“This is one of the leading conferences in this region dedicated to continuing professional development for all healthcare professionals working within or alongside the mental health sector. Each year we invite key international speakers to present some of the latest knowledge and findings in mental healthcare; but we also look forward to having local and regional experts present papers based on their own findings that are highly relevant to local customs and culture,” Dr Ghuloum added.
“We look forward to receiving abstracts of research projects or quality initiatives that applicants believe would make a suitable contribution to our programme and will be of interest to healthcare professionals working in Qatar and the region.”
Abstract submissions can be for intensive workshop sessions, oral presentations or poster presentations.
