Improving Outcomes in the Treatment of Opioid Dependence (IOTOD) is an educational initiative that aims to improve patient care in the field of opioid dependence through a variety of educational interventions: events, online education, as well as resources and tools.
Founded with the IOTOD conference, an annual event which has been running for 15 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 and resources, IOTOD has evolved into a diverse, multiplatform initiative driving change worldwide in the understanding and treatment of all areas of opioid dependence.
The IOTOD initiative addresses a multitude of practice deficits by working with renowned international experts, and using cutting-edge technology and creative techniques, to connect education directly with the clinical practice of delegates. In doing so, we have been able to capture data and meaningfully tackle critical issues in the therapy area.
A flagship live event in addictions therapy, the IOTOD conference has become a key event in the addictions world owing to its novel approach to creating impactful learning experiences. The latest scientific evidence is applied to clinical practice, with the ultimate aim of improving patient outcomes.
Year after year, IOTOD offers an exciting interactive educational opportunity for delegates and promises to provide them with the tools to address the needs of their more complex and challenging patients.
