'Lessons I’ve Learnt From Mistakes in Practice' WebinarLIVE!

To err is to be human (Alexander Pope, 1711) – it is normal for people to make mistakes.

Most senior veterinarians will say they are a better clinician because of the mistakes they have made. Many of us however feel ashamed or self-conscious about sharing these stories. Join Terry King, a veterinarian with decades of experience, as he presents a potpourri of tips and hints learned - mostly the hard way, which helped shape his approach to small animal practice.

Myths, folklore – and the evidence base - will be explored on topics such as 

  • when to use steroids and when not to use NSAIDs. 
  • How to avoid the negative laparotomy. 
  • When the type of fluid therapy doesn’t matter, and when the route does. 
  • Which imaging is better for which, and when to use them synergistically, for example, the value of chest radiographs in the ill geriatric. 
  • Is the respiratory distress kitty cardiac or respiratory? 

Equally important is Proverb 17:22 “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones” interpreted by Robert M Miller (DVM) as ‘Laughter is good veterinary medicine – don’t take yourself too seriously’. 
 

What is a WebinarLIVE!?

In support of the veterinary profession, the CVE has made the WebinarLIVE! series open access. Enjoy this CPD with our compliments. You will receive 1 CPD point for every CVE webinar completed.

Webinars are an ideal way to brush up on your skills when you are time poor, restricted by location or just prefer bite size CPD. WebinarLIVE! presentations are led by veterinary experts, watched in real time and are followed by an interactive Q&A. It’s your chance to interact with experts, ask your burning questions and get real-time answers.

And don't worry, if you miss this presentation, members can find these recordings in the CVE's Video Library following the event.
