About this course

Many of the patients you see every day in practice will be in pain. Are you doing the best for them? Would you like to improve your ability to assess and treat pain?

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 to reinforce the practical nature of pain medicine.

Why do this course?
You will learn recent advances in pain assessment and treatment that you can start to use in your practice the following day – improving analgesia options in your practice before the course has finished!

The webinars for this course will be pre-recorded and can be viewed as recorded versions throughout the course. A live Q&A session with the tutor will run on the following dates at 2.00pm London time.
