Consult EPAâ€™s new guidance papers
We are pleased to announce that the 4 new guidance papers, released in European Psychiatry in February 2014, are now available on the EPA website.
Clinical practice guidelines are important tools which aim to improve the quality of Mental Health Care in Europe.
The European Psychiatric Association is one of the partners of the mPIVAS project (mHealth psychoeducational intervention versus antipsychotic included side effects). It aims at improving the monitoring of side effects of antipsychotic medication in clinical practice.
In order to facilitate this process, a mobile application (PsyLOG) is being developed.
Two mPIVASpsychoeducational courses were organised at EPA Munich 2014. The sessions were filmed and 4 webcasts are now available on the EPA website. View them now.
