Town Meeting: Back to Project Future: Defining the Coming Decade
Have you wondered about what your practice will be like in the coming decade? Have you thought about how training, certification, and lifelong learning may change for child and adolescent psychiatrists? How will you be using new technology in your practice? What research needs to be done to advance our knowledge and skills?
“Back to Project Future” (BPF), one of Martin J. Drell, M.D.’s Presidential Initiatives, has worked for 18 months getting input from members, committees, and outside organizations to develop a “road map” for our field that can help guide AACAP’s leadership, members, and staff over the coming decade (2013 – 2023).
In this Town Meeting, Martin J. Drell, M.D. and the BPF leadership group present an overview of the final report for “Back to Project Future”. Presenters discuss selected items from the BPF final report including the BPF vision, guiding principles, over-arching goals, specific recommendations, and action steps - covering the areas of service/clinical practice, training/workforce, and research. Presenters respond to questions and also share some of the controversies and struggles encountered during the project. This is your opportunity to get the first look at the “road map” for child and adolescent psychiatry in the coming decade.
