5th International Conference on Psychiatrist, Geriatric Psychiatry and Counseling Psychology December 08-09, 2016 at San Antonio, USA

Conference Series LLC invites all the participants from all over the world to attend 5th International Conference on Psychiatrist and Geriatric Psychiatry which is going to be held during December 08-09, 2016 at San Antonio, USA which includes prompt keynote presentations, Oral talks, Poster presentations and Exhibitions.

Geriatric Psychiatry, a psychiatric subspecialty, focuses on the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of complex mental disorders uniquely occurring in late life. In contrast to subspecialties that deal with organ-specific diseases, Geriatric Psychiatry is focused on providing care for intensive-needs of patients and their caregivers at the end of the life cycle, a time when many complex physical and mental health issues coalesce. The subspecialty generates new knowledge through research, and interprets and disseminates new strategies and best practices in geriatric psychiatry to all health care professionals and trainees involved in the care of the elderly. Geriatric Psychiatry organizes service delivery of psychiatric care to the elderly in multidisciplinary teams and in locations that best serve the needs of this elderly population. Geriatric Psychiatry is engaged in advocacy and development of health policy and planning related to late life mental illness and mental health, caregiver and care provider support, and systems of care.

Psychiatrist 2016 is being organized in San Antonio named for Saint Anthony of Padua, whose feast day is on June 13, by a 1691 Spanish expedition in the area. It is notable for Spanish colonial missions, the Alamo, the River Walk, the Tower of the Americas, the Alamo Bowl, and Marriage Island. Commercial entertainment includes SeaWorld and Six Flags Fiesta Texas theme parks, and according to the San Antonio Convention and Visitors Bureau, the city is visited by about 26 million tourists a year. The city is home to the five-time NBA champion San Antonio Spurs and hosts the annual San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo, one of the largest such events in the country. San Antonio is home to six Fortune 500 companies and the South Texas Medical Center, the only medical research and care provider in the South Texas region.

Scope and Importance of Psychiatrist and Geriatric Psychiatry

The scope of geriatric psychiatry practice requires an understanding that all elderly patients, with unique disease presentations or atypical presentations of common diseases, have a complex interplay of structural and neurochemical brain changes, physiological and immunological reactions, personality structure, stressful life events, and early psychological development. Most have multiple chronic and concurrent medical and psychiatric conditions, and the Geriatric Psychiatrist must be adept at managing both. Further complexity is created by a variety of contextual issues including family dynamic issues, exhausted caregivers, lack of insight, stigma of old age and mental illness, social isolation, and challenging environments such as long term care homes requiring sharing of confined spaces.

Target Audience:

The target audiences for Psychiatrist 2016 are mainly from the associations and societies, students and professors from the academia of the various universities, researchers, scientists, experts, business delegates in the field of Geriatric Psychiatry.
