As COVID-19 is hugely affecting the way we meet, communicate and share knowledge, the 19th International ESCAP Congress is postponed until 2022. ESCAP are determined not to let the restrictions affect how often we meet, therefore, we hosted a 1-day virtual event on the 25th June 2021. This event had 5 keynote presentations on diverse topics that are relevant in child and adolescent psychiatry in today's challenging world. They are still available on the on-demand function, it's not too late to register and access them (unitl September 30th).
Please help us improve our future events by providing us with your feedback. Scan the QR code to be directed to a simple Google form survey, it'll only take 2 minutes. Please be aware the 1-5 scale has been inverted, 1 being the most satisfied and 5 being least satisfied.
