Dear Colleagues, dear Friends,
It is with a great pleasure that we welcome you to the 16th International Forum on Mood and Anxiety Disorders (IFMAD 2016) that will be taking place this year on December 8-10th in Rome, one of the most beautiful cities in the world!
IFMAD has developed the reputation over many years of being the most interactive, stimulating and productive educational meeting in its field in Europe and since 2015 we are providing an even more comprehensive scientific and educational programme.
It is accredited for continuing medical education. In a friendly atmosphere difficult clinical challenges are dissected, discussed and reformulated with high ranking experts to achieve the best evidence based path to treatment in depression, anxiety and bipolar disorder. To avoid bias, our educational program is completely independent from pharmaceutical support.
IFMAD 2016 topics will include: Standards of Care for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Cognition in Bipolar Disorder, Update on treatment resistant depression, Really rapid response antidepressants, Zika Virus disease and CNS consequences, Nutrition and depression, New thoughts on treatment of anxiety disorders, New insights in the treatment of depression, Advances in the treatment of Bipolar Disorder
We look forward to seeing you all in Rome for IFMAD 2016, to building strong professional contacts an expanding international network, to welcoming new participants and meeting our old friends, and discussing together the most important issues in this area of medicine!
