Schizophrenia Expert meeting in Gothenburg, October 13- 14
Is it time to change our perception?
The aim of these days is to provide updates from world-class speakers on the latest advances within the area of schizophrenia as well as to meet and network with colleagues from all of the Nordic countries.
This year’s programme is focused on the latest knowledge about the course of schizophrenia, from basic research to clinical implications and new treatment options. But we also want to highlight the cause of the disorder from different aspects looking at the complexity of schizophrenia.
Our perception of schizophrenia is developing and evolving, and this meeting will show you exactly how.
