IPA has long recognized capacity as an issue with clinical, ethical, medico-legal and human rights relevance to clinicians across a range of disciplines working in old age psychiatry. Originally championed by Sanford Finkel (IPA Past President), this issue has been garnering support through the efforts of both the IPA Capacity Shared Interest Forum and the Taskforce for Testamentary Capacity and Undue Influence. Growing interest resulted in the 1st International Conference on Capacity in Hong Kong (September 2014). Hosted by Capacity Australia in conjunction with the Hong Kong Psychogeriatric Association, the conference attracted 60 delegates from 8 countries (visit www.capacityaustralia.org.au for more). Building on that success, the 2nd International Conference on Capacity, convened by IPA in conjunction with Capacity Australia was held at the 2015 IPA International Congress in Berlin. This year's Conference on Capacity promises to once again showcase novel plenaries addressing a breadth of issues. This year’s theme is: risky business and other rights.

Imaging and Biomarkers Workshop

IMAGING AND BIOMARKERS WORKSHOP
08:30 - 16:30
Continental Ballroom 7-8
CME: 6.5 hours
Organizers: Gary Small and Michael Weiner
Speakers: Gary Small; Dan Silverman; Cyrus Raji; Katherine Narr; Michael Weiner; William Jagust; Mark D'Esposito; Doug Galasko

Imaging is increasingly being used by clinicians to enhance accuracy of diagnosis and to give important information regarding co-morbid pathologies which have an impact on management and prognosis. Imaging changes are increasingly entering clinical diagnostic criteria, and consensus clinical criteria for all main subtypes of dementia now include information about imaging changes. In addition, many clinical guidelines for dementia emphasize the need for informed, appropriate application of different imaging modalities in varying clinical situations. In response to the increased prominence of neuroimaging within routine psychogeriatric and neurological clinical practice, IPA is again offering this updated workshop to help enable professionals working in psychogeriatrics to understand and be able to apply and interpret imaging information to create opportunities for improved diagnosis and care.
