*canceled* 14th Annual Risk & Recovery Forensic Conference

Dr. Joseph Ferencz, Dr. Adelle Forth, Dr. Xiaoping Wang, Dr. Bernice Downey, Dr. Mark Olver
presented by St. Joseph's Healthcare Hamilton and McMaster University

Update from dr. Gary Chaimowitz, Head of Service, Forensic Psychiatry Program, March 14, 2020

Over the past few days, St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton and McMaster University have considered the impact of COVID-19 on the public, staff, learners and attendees. A large number of organizations and public health agencies have been moving towards cancelling large gatherings and conferences. In light of these circumstances, we regret that we need to cancel the 14th Annual Risk and Recovery Forensic Conference for April 15th – April 17th.

On behalf of the Forensic Psychiatry program here at St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton, we would like to thank you for your support of our Annual Risk and Recovery Conference. Our presenters and participants have been an instrumental partner in the success of this conference.

St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton and the Forensic Psychiatry Program truly value your commitment to our conference and this decision has been extremely difficult to make. Given the extenuating circumstances our community is currently facing, we appreciate your understanding of our decision to cancel the Risk and Recovery Conference. We are in consultation with Public Health Canada as well as other provincial partners in their ongoing recommendations to prevent further impact. For those of you who have paid registration fees, arrangements are being made for a full refund as soon as possible. Refunds will be issued using your original payment method. We also ask that individuals cancel their own hotel guestroom reservations by calling the Sheraton directly at 888-627-8161.

Thank you again for your understanding.

Learn from experts in risk assessment, risk management, and recovery!

We are pleased to again be hosting the Risk and Recovery Forensic Conference for our 14th year! A conference for professionals in mental health, probation & parole, corrections, legal services and police.

St. Joseph's Healthcare Hamilton's Forensic Psychiatry Program is committed to the importance of the academic enterprise. It is through the acquisition of new knowledge through research, knowledge translation and education that allows our program to be a forerunner in mental health research and to deliver the best possible care to the patients we serve.

Five stimulating keynote speakers will address a variety of topics. Participants will choose from a number of symposia to address topics in forensic mental health in more detail.
