International Medicine in Addiction Conference 2021
In 2021, the fifth International Medicine in Addiction Conference will be moved to a virtual platform.
By using digital technology, participants can expect an engaging, challenging and educational line up across the three-day program on 26 - 28 February 2021.
This year’s theme is Connecting the Disconnected. It acknowledges that doctors work with people and communities who use substances that can cause complex issues, disconnection and marginalisation and need to respond to their patients accordingly.
The conference is hosted by the Royal Australia College of General Practitioners (RACGP), The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists (RANZCP) and The Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP). View the program
