The agenda will focus on issues related to sustaining evidence-based CSC, including fidelity monitoring and feedback, measurement-based treatment, strengthening interdisciplinary collaboration, achieving rapid and enduring client engagement, and employing shared decision-making principles.

A panel of FEP researchers and policy makers from Australia, Canada, Denmark, and the UK will comment on recent U.S. progress, and share “lessons learned” from those countries’ efforts to implement early intervention services on a national level.

Featured Speakers Include:
 - Robert Heinssen, National Institutes of Mental Health
 - Tamara Sale, Portland State University & EASA Center for Excellence
 - Lisa Dixon, Columbia University Medical Center & Center for Practice Innovations
 - Patrick McGorry, University of Melbourne & Orygen Youth Health
The meeting will enhance interaction among stakeholders in early psychosis research and clinical care and will build additional support for the EPINET concept of high fidelity, measurement-based care for FEP.
