Learning objectives:

  1. To explore the physiologic basis by which methadone may prolong the QTc interval as well as current trends in the literature.
  2. To understand the rationale behind current recommended practices and how we might endeavour to further reduce the potential risks associated with high dose methadone.

What’s New in Addiction Medicine is a lunch-time series featuring clinicians and researchers who will deliver the latest research and information on novel, evidence-based addiction medicine topics.

This free series is geared towards the needs and interests of individuals operating in a healthcare or research setting, however, the public and other interested stakeholders are welcome and encouraged to attend.
