Following on from the success of our spring webinar and annual conference, we are pleased to announce that the IOTOD Summer webinar ‘The opioid-dependance treatment triangle in prisons: medication, continuity, and harm reduction’ will be taking place on Wednesday 7th September at 16:00 BST.
The IOTOD summer webinar will be led by Professor Heino Stöver and joined by Dr Andrej Kastelic. This webinar will look at the treatment of patients with opioid use disorder within the prison system and their specific needs from treatment services. Additionally, this webinar will share best practice approaches for transferring this patient population on daily dose methadone or buprenorphine to long-acting buprenorphine (LAB) and discuss any associated benefits these treatment formulations may have in custodial settings. The event will conclude with a lively Q&A session.
Accessing our community of healthcare professionals via our media brands Pulse, Nursing in Practice, The Pharmacist, Hospital Pharmacy Europe and Hospital Healthcare Europe, as well as the well-established IOTOD community, the webinar will welcome addiction specialists, psychiatrists, GPs, community pharmacists, primary care nurses and other healthcare professional managing patients with opioid dependence and associated comorbidities.
