Improving Outcomes in the Treatment of Opioid Dependence (IOTOD) is an educational initiative that aims to improve opioid dependence healthcare through a variety of programmes, such as the annual conference, the THN toolkit, reports and other educational online resources.
Founded with the IOTOD conference, an annual event which has been running for 20 years, the IOTOD initiative brings together healthcare professionals from across the globe to share and discuss best practice in the field of opioid dependence.
Providing a variety of live and online educational interventions, IOTOD has evolved into a diverse, multiplatform initiative driving change worldwide in the understanding and treatment of opioid dependence. IOTOD also supports harm reduction efforts, overdose prevention strategies and Hepatitis C elimination.
