Webinar Plus - What is this?
About this course
This Webinar Plus course aims to equip participants with a thorough knowledge of small animal pain, its deleterious effects on patients and approaches to its assessment. The course will then explore the treatment options available for both practice and home use together with their advantages and disadvantages. Real case examples will be used where possible to reinforce the practical nature of pain medicine.
The course will run online over four weeks and consist of a mixture of weekly webinars (which can be viewed live and/or as recorded versions throughout the course), online self-assessment exercises, supplementary reading material and discussion forums involving the tutors and veterinary colleagues from around the world.
Participants can earn up to 16 CPD hours. It will also be useful CPD for veterinarians preparing for the RCVS CertAVP C modules in small animal anaesthesia and analgesia (C-VA) and critical care and analgesia (C-ECC.3).
