MDPAC was well represented at the Canadian Psychiatric Association Annual Conference in Ottawa last week. Our information booth was visited by many conference attendees who remembered seeing us at last year's CPA conference in Toronto and who were enthused about the work that we are doing to promote quality psychotherapy by physicians. There was universal support for our rebranding efforts and, in particular, for our new name. Several application forms were handed out to psychiatrists who indicated that they now want to become members of MDPAC.
It was a very successful and worthwhile event. Thank you to Caroline King for spearheading the project, being at the booth every day and keeping everyone else on schedule.
Thank you to Catherine Low, Lise Poirier- Groulx, Elizabeth Parsons and Brian McDermid for staffing the booth.
