Three "Focus Live" sessions will be held at APA's 2005 annual
meeting in which an audience-response system (ARS) is used to allow
participants to test their knowledge.
The 90-minute sessions will cover topics from APA's new journal, Focus:
The Journal of Lifelong Learning in Psychiatry. During the sessions,
experts will lead lively discussions based on multiple-choice questions that
the audience answers using the ARS. The ARS instantly projects a histogram on
a screen allowing private comparison with the responses of others in the
audience and offers a new and entertaining way to learn. Sessions will be
moderated by the editors of Focus, Deborah Hales, M.D., and Mark
Hyman Rapaport, M.D., and will be held in Room A405 on Level 4 of the Georgia
World Congress Center.
