Continuing professional development is an important part of maintaining knowledge and improving care. There is a wealth of CPD now available to veterinary nurses and veterinary surgeons and large amounts of information are given to the professions through this route whether it is through conferences, webinars, publications etc.
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’. This can enable professionals to confidently and critically decide which information should be incorporated in practice to benefit patients and which should not.
