Can we offer opioid-dependent patients greater freedom?

27 January 2021

Next month, PCM Scientific will be hosting a spring educational session exploring how opioid-dependent patients are being offered greater freedom through treatment.

The free event is taking place on 23rd February and will be led by Dr Michael Kelleher, who will be joined by Dr Bernadette Hard and nurse specialist Mrs Lisa Kieh. During the live 60-minue event, the expert panel will be discussing the significance of patient freedom along with the sharing of best-practice treatment approaches using long-acting buprenorphine as part of an effective management strategy for opioid dependence.

The educational session will also explore patient-reported outcomes and perspectives from a key national pilot in Wales as well the challenges faced during the COVID-19 pandemic. There will also be the opportunity to hear directly from a patient and his perspectives on what freedom means to him and how treatment has impacted his daily life. Audience members will be encouraged to submit questions for the live Q&A during the event, providing a platform for what hopes to be a lively discussion!

The IOTOD webinar is supported by grant funding from Camurus.
