    After initial review of all submissions, a select number of abstracts will be selected for presentation at the 2023 ACMT Annual Scientific Meeting on March 31 - April 2, 2023 in San Diego, CA.

    This meeting will be fully in-person. Presenters will be expected to register for the meeting and present in-person on the main stage in San Diego. There will be no virtual option.

    During the Open Mic session, selected presenters are required to give their presentation in an Ignite style. This format creates intense and fast presentations with sharp, concise messages. Each presentation must be 5 minutes long and have the following format:

    • 20 slides
    • 15 seconds per slide
    • Slides automatically advance after 15 seconds

    This is an example of an Ignite® talk: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yGENcskRGRk&feature=youtu.be

    March 30, 2023

    After a 2-year hiatus, ACMT is back for our first in-person Symposium since the start of the pandemic! Join ACMT for a full-day symposium where we explore the intersection of toxicology and mental health. 

    2023 ACMT Symposium | Self-Harm, Suicidality, and the Poisoned Patient: The Intersection of Toxicology and Mental Health
    Thursday, March 30, 2023
    San Diego, Marriott La Jolla, San Diego, CA

    Suicide is a major public health problem and leading cause of preventable death. The practice of toxicology often involves caring for patients who injure themselves by poisoning. Toxic exposures may affect the central nervous system, cause neuropsychiatric symptoms, and increase the likelihood of suicidality. Join ACMT for a full-day symposium that will discuss the ethics, psychology, management, and global epidemiology of the suicidal patient through a toxicology lens. Clinicians will also learn about lethal means restriction, care of the “frequent attempter,” and strategies to prevent death by suicide. Ultimately, the course will hopefully help us better understand the suicidal toxicology patient and improve their care.
