Over the last few election cycles the RANZCP Board and its Presidents have pursued a conscious strategy of increasing efforts to communicate clear priorities to members and encouraging feedback on those priorities and other important issues.

The address acknowledged the ongoing effects of the pandemic and the significant social disruption, but also highlighted the strong position of the RANZCP due to these years of strategic consolidation and the strong collaboration between staff and members.In this episode of Psych Matters, Dr Andrew Amos interviews Associate Professor John Allan about the Board's unchanged ambition to promote the health and welfare of the psychiatric community in Australasia.Associate Professor John Allan is the current President of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists (RANZCP).
