Veterinary careers recordings from London Vet Show 2016

Posted on March 03, 2017 by James Mullarkey

As a follow on from the BVA Congress recordings I previously posted I've now added the full set of veterinary career development recordings from London Vet Show 2016.

This stage was unique at the show as the focus was not on clinical skills but on tips, thoughts and techniques for working with veterinary clients and helping vets to improve all the other aspects of their day to day work.

You can now buy the full set of recordings for all the BVA career development sessions from - that's over 10 hours of veterinary CPD for a mere £8.40.
Go to any of the individual session pages and click on the purple 'Pay to view' button to buy them all. I've listed them all below to give you a flavour of what to expect.

Palliative care in veterinary practice

Palliative care unites the entire practice team and can be provided on site, at home or on an out-patient basis. The difference between palliative care and end of life care is that palliative care can be introduced sooner into the patient’s management plan. However, when treatment is no longer effective and quality of life is declining, our focus must shift to preparation for the emotional and practical aspects of euthanasia.

Maximising CPD value by bringing learning back into veterinary practice

Trying to establish what information provided through CPD is solidly based in evidence and what is not, is vital if it is to be used to change practice. Learning and using some basic skills of Evidence-based Veterinary Medicine (EVM) can enable professionals to establish ‘fact’ from ‘fiction’.
