Your Patients Journey through the Health System – the LUMOS Project

Tuesday, 8 December 2020 

Registrations for the International Medicine in Addiction Conference, IMiA21 Virtual, are open.

IMiA will be running virtually on 26 to 28 February, and will deliver an engaging educational agenda to delegates across the world.

This year’s conference will again present an innovative scientific program and international keynotes speakers to delegates, while focusing on the relationships doctors build with their patients and communities.

For attendees living in regional or rural areas who may not have been able to attend in previous years, this is an opportunity to participate in the conference. 

The theme of the 2021 IMiA conference is ‘connecting the disconnected’, acknowledging that doctors work with people and communities who use substances, and therefore are very aware of the complex issues, the disconnection, marginalisation and need to respond to people’s unique situations and issues.

International keynote speakers include Sam Chamberlain on behavioural addictions, Owen Bowden-Jones on party drugs and chem sex, and Shelly Greenfield on comorbidity. 

The event is run in partnership with three colleges – RACGP, The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists (RANZCP) and The Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP).
