I think this area (soft skills) is hard to get into and uncomfortable and easy to pooh–pooh, but on the other hand it’s very valuable to explore and of course entirely complementary to the daily clinical grind of practice.

About this course

Are you struggling with the CertAVP A module - not sure what it’s about, what relevance it has to your clinical practice or just unclear how to get started?

The A-FAVP module is designed to promote and develop the skills that are intrinsic to the successful veterinary professional and the advanced practitioner – application of an expert body of knowledge, and making decisions in challenging situations. This course is intended to support both of these outcomes.
The most important, and most satisfying way to succeed in the A module at the RVC is to be able to connect the A module skills to the cases and situations you experience in your own veterinary practice. The focus of these four weeks will therefore be on how to apply these concepts to your own clinical experience. Help will be given on reflective writing, professional reasoning and decisionmaking, resolution of ethical dilemmas and managing challenging situations.

Why do this course?
You will build confidence in tackling the essays in the CertAVP A module, starting by building an appreciation of why this module is important to the advanced practitioner.

There is a discounted fee on this course of £59 for existing CertAVP candidates. Please contact the CPD Unit office on 01707 666865 to book your place.

The webinars will run on the following dates from 12.00pm to 1.30pm London time including a 30 minute registration and familiarisation period prior to the commencement of the lecture.
