The General Practice and Addiction (GPADD) conference is a great opportunity to learn and network with GPs and other health professionals working in this area. GPADD22 will focus on treating vulnerable communities. People with addiction or substance-use disorders are by definition often vulnerable, but this year’s conference will concentrate on populations that experience additional vulnerabilities that affect substance use – the LGBTIQ+ community, refugees and asylum seekers, people experiencing homelessness, and those in custody.

GPADD22 is open to all GPs, New Fellows, GPs in training and others working in the AOD field with GPs.40 CPDAA points
