UPDATE ICOO 2021 Virtual Edition
We would like to continue to support the broader healthcare community in the proper use of opioids in medicine.
To that end we have reopened the Call for Presentations, Posters and Satelite Symposia.
Journal of Opioid Management will hold its annual International Conference On Opioids (ICOO) virtually in 2021. The virtual version will be available for a minimum of five months – thru July 15th, 2021. This will allow you to learn from leaders in the field and learn at your own pace.
