      Methadone is a complicated opioid that requires great care in selecting appropriate candidates, dosing and monitoring. The majority of practitioners lack these skills. It is critically important that pharmacists are knowledgeable about methadone.

      Given a simulated case of a patient receiving methadone, identify best practices to monitor the patient’s response to therapy (therapeutic and potential toxicity).
      Given a simulated opioid-naïve, or opioid-tolerant patient, recognize a starting methadone dose that reflects patient- and methadone-specific variables.
      Given a simulated case of a patient starting or receiving methadone, recognize a course of action when the patient is taking or will begin taking a medication known to interact with methadone.
      Identify the pharmacodynamic effects (all three proposed mechanisms of action) and pharmacokinetic parameters (absorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion) of methadone.
