RANZCP Annual Conference May 2019 Cairns QLD


RANZCP Annual Conference Cairns QLD 2019

Register now for RANZCP 2019 Congress workshops and wellness activities.

The RANZCP2019 Congress will be held from 12–16 May 2019 at the Cairns Convention Centre and will explore the theme ‘Continuity in a world of change: culture, diversity and mutual learning’.

We invite you to attend the RANZCP 2019 Congress in Cairns, the gateway to Queensland’s tropical north. Cairns is a vibrant tropical city with excellent accommodation, restaurants, boutique shopping, art galleries, and a diverse cultural history. The City of Cairns plays host to two unique natural wonders of the world: the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest, both of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Tropical North Queensland is the only place in the world where two World Heritage-listed areas are side by side.

Pre-Congress workshops
As an integral element of the Congress scientific program, a series of full-day and half-day pre-Congress workshops will be held on Sunday 12 May 2019. All workshops will provide valuable insights and discussions across a broad range of topics. 

Registration for the workshops is now available via the Congress registration form.

Our esteemed local and international keynote speakers will be joined by a diverse range of speakers participating in panel discussions, debates, symposia and other oral presentations. The program will also feature clinical updates on forensic psychiatry, neuropsychiatry, and child and adolescent psychiatry, providing a detailed review of recent findings, advances and trends.

Wellness activities
We encourage delegates to take some time for themselves and their wellbeing within the Congress schedule. The 2019 program will feature sailing, walking tours, yoga and golf.

Register for these activities via the Congress registration form.

Social program
Congress will commence with a leisurely welcome reception at Salt House where delegates will have the opportunity to relax and enjoy the company of colleagues and friends while taking in the mountain, ocean and Trinity Inlet views Tropical North Queensland has to offer.

The annual Congress gala dinner will take place at the Tanks Arts Centre in the beautiful Cairns Botanic Gardens. Guests will enjoy a meal of modern Australian cuisine, showcasing the best produce in the region, with accompanying entertainment, in this unique location. Tickets can be purchased with your Congress registration.
