One of the ​main goals of the Maltese Association of Psychiatry is to solidify the educational and academic aspects of Psychiatry and Mental Health care in Malta. We are reaching one of these goals with the first annual MAP Conference, which will be held on the 29th of January 2016. This conference is intended to become a yearly event in the local medical calendar, and our hope is for it to stimulate academic interest in all of us who work in the mental health field.

This year’s conference will have as its theme Standards and Models of Delivery of Psychiatric and Mental Health Care. Thanks to the energy and industry of the Educational Subcommittee of the MAP, the conference will be addressed by a number of international speakers, whose contribution will in turn complement the proposed developments in our local services.

Since the provision of adequate health care remains an essentially collaborative process, we will naturally hear from psychiatrists, but we will also have the pleasure of listening to the experience of other mental health professionals about the changing standards of care in their professions and how this is integrated into the final patient experience at the point of contact with us.

The conference will be held over the course of one day, during which we will discuss inpatient, outpatient, community, and child and adolescent service provision. Conference participation will include coffee breaks and lunch; after lunch, we will hold 3 workshops related to topics covered by our speakers, and following that, to close the conference we will have a more traditional educational event, where we will all learn more about the highly topical issue of Gender Dysphoria and it management.

At the close of the conference, the MAP will hold its Annual General Meeting, to which all members are invited.
