Following the first Improving Outcomes in the Treatment of Opioid Dependence (IOTOD) event of the year, our spring webinar is now available to watch on-demand.  

IOTOD spring webinar on-demand

The 60-minute webinar, titled ‘Transitioning between opioid dependence treatments: clinical considerations and switching strategies’, covers reasons why patients with opioid dependence (OD) may switch between treatments and the logistic considerations for such transitions.

Using case study examples, the on-demand spring webinar shares how to prepare patients for a change in treatment and choose a transition strategy best suited to the patients’ needs.

Feedback has been fantastic:

  • ‘Excellent learning opportunity’
  • ‘This was my first IOTOD webinar and I really enjoyed it. Very interesting and useful information for my practice’
  • ‘Keep up the good work, it’s a big help for many professionals’

The spring webinar is the first of this year’s IOTOD webinar series and builds upon the success of our 2022 webinars providing targeted education to both primary and secondary care audiences.

Marketing of the live and on-demand webinar 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 2023 ‘Transitioning between opioid dependence treatments: clinical considerations and switching strategies’ is supported by grant funding from Camurus. The educational programme is run at arm’s length from the financial supporters and all content is created by the faculty. No funder has had input into the content of the materials or presentations used in the educational programme. PCM Scientific is the medical education company acting as scientific secretariat and webinar organiser.

Coming up in May is 2023 IOTOD conference, returning for its 21st year. The conference will cover advanced topics and cutting-edge research, providing high quality education to healthcare professionals across Europe over a 2-day live virtual event, taking place on 17th-18th May 2023.
