Annual Meeting
Test Your Knowledge!
Psychiatric News
Volume 44 Number 5 page 19-19

Three Focus Live sessions will be held at APA's 2009 annual meeting during which an audience-response system (ARS) will be used to allow participants to test their knowledge. The 90-minute interactive sessions will cover topics from APA's continuing medical education 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 each participant to compare privately his or her responses 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 Rapaport, M.D., and held in the Moscone Center Gateway Ballroom. The schedule, topics, and presenters are as follows:


9 a.m.-10:30 a.m.

11 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
