American Association for Emergency Psychiatry invites you to join us virtually for our 11th Annual NUBE Conference December 3-4, 2020

We are seeking dynamic, engaging, and knowledgeable presenters for the annual National Update on Behavioral Emergencies Conference.

CRITERIA

Proposals are solicited for topics in behavioral emergencies that are interactive, creative, dynamic, and feature best practices in psychiatric emergency medicine. Based on the complexity and subject matter of your topic, you will be assigned either a 15-minute or a 30-minute presentation slot (please indicate if you have a preference when applying).

The presentation timeframe should include introductions, presentation material, and a question & answer session. Attendees should leave with specific knowledge and skills about various aspects of the topic and how it relates to their future development. Presentations should provide attendees with educational value and refrain from promoting a specific business, product, or service.
