About this course

This course is aimed at qualified veterinary nurses who wish to expand and further their knowledge of working with emergency and critical care patients. Many nurses find emergency work stressful and overwhelming but it can be exhilarating and rewarding with a good team and forward thinking. This course will refresh your knowledge of specific key areas including preparation of the clinic and team, common emergency presentations and how to nurse the hospitalised critical patient. The key elements of each topic will be broken down so that you can take ideas and tips away to implement in your clinic.

This course will run for six weeks and will combine a one hour weekly reading tutorial, shared discussion forums including casebased approaches and self-assessment tasks. This as well as supplementary reading will offer you a total of 18 CPD hours.
