2023 Annual Meeting & Scientific Session Handouts

Please be sure to download the slide presentations in advance to the desktop of your tablet or laptop or to your mobile device. If you prefer, you may print handouts of the presentations and bring them with you.

PLEASE NOTE: The presentations/handouts that are included in these links are not comprehensive. Speakers may update their slides prior to presentation. NCPA staff will do their best to provide the most up-to-date version of speaker handouts online. 

Because of the images, some files are large so they may take some time to download. Wireless access will be available in the meeting space, but connectivity cannot be guaranteed. Therefore, it is very important that you download the presentations prior to the meeting, rather than at the meeting.

2023 Program Schedule

This schedule is subject to change at any time leading up to the conference.

This year NCPA is offering its first ever Pre-Conference, "Workplace Safety: Empowering Physicians and Supporting Healthcare Professionals"

"Workplace Safety: Empowering Physicians and Supporting Healthcare Professionals" is being offered as a direct, timely response to the recent occurrences of workplace violence against healthcare professionals. These sessions will work to destigmatize mental health and violence in healthcare, encourage advocacy for the safety of psychiatrists and other healthcare workers, and explore liability as it relates to discharging a patient due to safety concerns.

You are welcome to attend the Pre-Conference only or in addition to the Annual Meeting.
