IOTOD 2009

IOTOD 2009’s practice-based sessions took an in-depth look at numerous clinical challenges: from improving safety in pharmacotherapy, to coping with acute threats to patient stability, and the management of complex patients.

The meeting’s international faculty used interactive workshops, panel discussions and plenary presentations to relate the latest scientific evidence base to delegates’ everyday clinical practice, tackling such key issues as the management of acute and chronic pain, comorbid HIV and HCV, and the effects of gender on treatment.
