The aim will be to enhance clinical skills and knowledge so to  improve delegate’s confidence in dealing with what can be both mentally and emotionally very challenging cases. We will provide updates on the ways to diagnose cancer and the surgical and medical management strategies. Using clinical case examples we will discuss the diagnosis and management of some of the more common small animal cancers.   

** Free Twycross Zoo entry is included for the day **

Topics to be covered include:

  • Sampling masses; fine needle aspirates, core biopsies, excisional biopsies – when, what and how?
  • The principles and practical practice of surgical oncology
  • The use of chemotherapy and radiotherapy in managing the cancer patient
  • Case examples to illustrate the diagnosis and management of some of the common cancer  types.
  • The ethical issues of cancer care

Learning Objectives:

By the end of the course the delegates should have an understanding and ability in the following areas:

  • The indications and contra-indications for fine needle aspirates, core, incisional and excisional biopsies
  • The basic principles of surgical resection of tumours, and the importance of surgical margins
  • The use of chemotherapy and radiotherapy
  • The investigation and management of some common cancer types
  • Ethical issue surround animals with cancer

Focussing on Frustrating Felines

While the majority of small animal vets are happy to see a mix of canine and feline patients, there are many situations where we need to acknowledge that cats are definitely different to dogs!  This day course will focus on some diseases that are unique to cats and some where they just have a different presentation or response to treatment compared with dogs.  This day course aims to restore enthusiasm for the medical challenges our feline friends pose using case based material to encourage interactive discussions and problem solving in one of the sessions.

Small Animal Neurology - Interactive Case Studies

This one day course will be structured around case based sessions in small animal neurology. The course will use a series of case based scenarios to explore the investigation, diagnosis and treatment of common neurological cases. There will be time to consider more complex treatment options when primary treatment measures are unsuccessful.

It is hoped that in all sessions there is an interactive component to the delivery allowing the problems experienced previously by the delegates in the management of neurological conditions to be explored and alternative strategies proposed. Delegates are encouraged to bring along to the course details of clinical cases which they have previously struggled to promote discussion.

Understanding Clinical Audit

Clinical Audit, where veterinary surgeons review their practice against standards and identify solutions, is now recognised as an effective mechanism for improving the quality of patient care.  Audit is essential to provide a structure to reflect and change.  This course will enable the practitioner to understand clinical audit and appreciate the important role of audit in veterinary practice as outlined by the RCVS as well as improve the health of patients by addressing the causes of sub-optimal outcomes in patient care.  The course includes one hour pre-course and two hour post-course assignments, making a total of 10 hours CPD and includes lectures and workshops.  This course is open to all practising veterinary surgeons and practice managers.
