Regional Initiative Forums

IPA Regional Initiative Forums connect members in specific areas of the world with the goal of encouraging the development and advancement of the field of Psychogeriatrics. The Regional Initiative Forums facilitate the sharing of information for professionals by:

  • providing an organized place for the exchange of information and identification of issues specific to their region
  • facilitating coordination for projects to address unique issues in the various regions of the world

This is accomplished through IPA Regional Meetings and Congresses, the IPA Member Forums (online), relationships with regional organizations, regional working groups, website content, online discussions and other vehicles. The Chair and members of each Regional Initiative Forum must be IPA members in good standing.

Currently, Regional Initiative Forums are active in four areas of the world:
