Section of Child and Adolescent Forensic Psychiatry Conference

As conference hosts, the RANZCP is very conscious of the emergence of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) as a global health issue and have therefore made the decision to postpone the Section of Child and Adolescent Forensic Psychiatry Conference until February/March 2021.

The health and safety of conference attendees is our highest priority, and the RANZCP will keep delegates informed with regular updates as further information or advice becomes available.

The RANZCP is monitoring the latest health advice from both the Department of Health (Australia) and the Ministry of Health (New Zealand), and we ask that all delegates do the same.

PARKROYAL Darling Harbour
150 Day Street, Sydney NSW 2000
