About the Meeting


2020 Meeting Theme

Advancing Quality: Challenges & Opportunities

The theme for this year's Annual Meeting, "Advancing Quality: Challenges and Opportunities," was chosen because of the importance and timeliness of quality in medical care.

APA knows how challenging clinical practice can be, with the variety of pressures on psychiatrists and care teams. At times, these pressures can even seem at odds with delivering high-quality care. And yet, there are opportunities ahead to ensure more individuals suffering from mental illness have access to effective psychiatric care.

The 2020 Annual Meeting will help you navigate issues like outcome measurement, quality improvement, infrastructure, reporting, service delivery, and systems change. Sessions on quality will range from the most practical clinical topics, to the latest research, to the policy and advocacy issues that impact your everyday practice.

Join us in Philadelphia, April 25-29, 2020, for rich discussions that will help you prepare your practice for tomorrow's challenges.
