RECORDED PROGRAM NOW AVAILABLE: Early Career Network Webinar: Perspectives on BPSD.
The future of IPA lies in the hands of early career researchers and clinicians who will become the new leaders in the field of mental health for older adults. It was with this mindset that IPA leaders launched the ECN, aimed at building global collaboration opportunities for early career clinicians and researchers.
