The annual Improving Outcomes in the Treatment of Opioid Dependence (IOTOD) conference returned for its 21st year on 17th and 18th May 2022. 

IOTOD 2023 Conference

The IOTOD 2023 virtual conference is an educational initiative, run by PCM Scientific, and was held virtually for the fourth year running, covering advanced topics in the treatment of opioid dependence.

The IOTOD initiative brings together healthcare professionals from across the globe to share and discuss best practice in the field of opioid dependence. The two-day live event covered several topics delivered by experts on opioid dependency, prevention and treatment, viral hepatitis, pain management among other thought-provoking subjects.

The event utilised Cogora’s virtual event platform, HCP Connect, and comprised of seven educational sessions, 15 expert international speakers, two sponsored satellite sessions, and five scientific posters with live German and Spanish translation.

Overall feedback has been very positive surrounding the IOTOD 2023 virtual conference. Following our initial survey, 90% of the attendees rated the quality of the content presented as excellent/good, 95% rated speakers as excellent/good and 100% said that there was no bias during the educational programme.

All live sessions were recorded and are available on-demand for 30 days post event, to enable delegates to access sessions they may have missed at their convenience. Marketing of the live and on-demand content has been to our community of primary and secondary care healthcare professionals via our media brands, as well as the well-established IOTOD community and faculty. The audiences includes addiction specialists, GPs, primary care nurses, community pharmacists, psychiatrists, as well as other healthcare professionals interested in the management of opioid use disorder across the UK and Europe.

The IOTOD Spring webinar, the first IOTOD event of the year, is now also available to watch on-demand.
