AOP Orphan Press Briefing at World Psychiatric Association International Congress 2013

28/10/2013, Company Events (EN)

As part of the “WPA 2013” (World Psychiatric Association International Congress 2013) on 28th October 2013, the symposium “Agitation – Symptom or Syndrome?“ will take place in which the special difficulty of agitation will be explained and an innovative  treatment approach presented. AOP Orphan – bronze partner of the WPA 2013 – is organizing a press briefing shortly before the symposium, where the complex matter will be presented especially for you in a media-friendly format.

Agitation occurs in patients with schizophrenia or bipolar disorder and is extremely burdensome for those who suffer from it.
