The ONCAIPS network looks forward to hosting the annual conference September 28th to 29th, hosted at Ontario Shores.  The theme of the conference this year is The Changing Landscape of Child and Adolescent Inpatient Units – What’s Going On?  The goal of the conference is to open the conversation about how we are managing the complex presentations on our units.  While we consider what changes we can make, as a provincial network, to support the needs of youth admitted to our inpatient settings.

We invite you to come and learn more about the current trends on inpatient units from a provincial lens.  We will take a journey to hear about how community-based programs have responded to need to “move the needle”.  We will hear how they completed the work, the challenges faced when making the change, along with how measurement-based care is supporting the direction of treatment recommended by the clinical team.  

The ONCAIPS conference provides the opportunity to network with leaders and members of the interdisciplinary inpatient teams. We are excited to share and collaborate ideas to help strengthen the crucial work of child and adolescent inpatient units. For those unable to meet in person there will be a virtual option.

If you are interested in sharing your successes and/or recent research supporting child and adolescent inpatient care.  There will be an opportunity to showcase your work at the conference.  Please email @email if you are interested.

Event is a half-day on Thursday, September 28 and a full day on Friday, September 29. See the agenda
