IOTOD 2012

IOTOD 2012 used a variety of interactive formats to bring the latest data on the treatment of opioid dependence to life.

Case studies, audience participation, panel discussions, a complex case clinic and an international clinicans’ manifesto were just some of the methods used to engage delegates in applying the evolving evidence base to improving treatment outcomes. Topics ranged from co-dependencies and complex patients to emerging issues such as gender effects.
