Recommended Conferences for Psychiatric epidemiology

Psychiatric epidemiology

As per available reports about 2 relevant journals, 1 Conferences, 93 workshops are presently dedicated exclusively to psychiatric epidemiology and about 161 articles are being published on psychiatric epidemiology. 

Psychiatric epidemiology is a field which seeks to study the conceptualization, etiology, and prevalence of mental illness in society. It is a subfield of the more general epidemiology. It is very difficult to accurately study mental illness conceptualization, etiology, and prevalence, and current techniques are relatively poor. Two areas of concern, sometimes called the crisis of psychiatric epidemiology today, are the high estimates of mental illness that many studies produce and the difference in results between studies. Clinical versus actual prevalence. Clinical prevalence is a measure of how many people who seek out mental health services are actually diagnosed with a mental illness, whereas actual prevalence is the number of people in all of society who have a mental illness. It is much easier to study clinical prevalence because people with mental illness are identified by receiving a diagnosis, but epidemiologists are most interested in actual prevalence. To that end, efforts are continually made to improve research techniques in order to better estimate the actual prevalence of mental illness.
Sensitivity and specificity
Another concern of psychiatric epidemiological studies are the issues of sensitivity and specificity. Sensitivity is a measure of how well a given selection criteria detects all of the people with a specific mental illness. Specificity is a measure of how well the technique identifies people with a mental illness without falsely identifying people without a mental illness.
Validity and reliability
In order for a study to be useful, it must be both valid and reliable. Validity is a measure of how well the study measures what it is intended to measure. Reliability refers to how consistently the same result can be achieved. If an experiment is not reliable or valid, it will not withstand peer review.
