Malvern, PA (PRWEB) August 28, 2013
HMP Communications Holdings, LLC, a leader in healthcare communications and education, is proud to announce the addition of the Psych Congress Video Quiz Challenge, now available exclusively through their content-driven mental health website, Psych Congress Network. Equal parts interactive learning tool and online contest, the Video Quiz Challenge will test mental health professionals on their understanding of DSM-5 and award the most knowledgeable entrants substantial prizes.
Beginning Wednesday, August 28, 2013, participants will have the ability to register at http://www.psychcongress.com/video-quiz-challenge-registration for the 10-week contest, which officially begins on October 8, 2013. Each week, registered participants will answer two quiz questions about DSM-5, the first major update to the standard classification system for mental disorders in more than 20 years. Psych Congress Network faculty will pose the questions via video, and participants will select the correct answer from several choices that display at the end of the brief videos.
“Understanding and retaining information about DSM-5 is vital for mental health clinicians, and the video quiz format facilitates learning by presenting information in an interactive, digestible manner. Based on how clinicians answer the questions, they will be able to identify any knowledge gaps and further solidify what they already know about DSM-5,” said Rakesh Jain, MD, MPH, Psych Congress Network steering committee member.
The grand prize winner will be determined based upon the most questions answered correctly, in the least amount of time. The winner will receive a package worth over $2,000, comprised of a $1,000 American Express gift card and one free registration to the 2014 U.S. Psychiatric and Mental Health Congress at the Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel in Orlando, FL. Two runners up will receive free one-year access to Psych Congress On Demand.
Eligible participants in the Video Quiz Challenge include but are not limited to psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, nurse practitioners, primary care physicians, and all other health care professionals interested in enhancing their knowledge of DSM-5.
“At the end of the day, better knowledge of DSM-5 means better outcomes for our patients,” said Dr. Jain.
