This course is focused on working through presenting signs and aims to help vets in general, equine or small animal practice manage their eye cases with greater competence and confidence. The course will present the latest evidence-based information as well as numerous videos and images of ophthalmic conditions and procedures, which you will be encouraged to practice at a two-day practical workshop at Dr Stanley’s practice.

Provide better outcomes for all your surgical patients and boost your confidence to approach more complex surgeries. Wouldn’t it be great to provide your patients and clients with more and better surgical options and be able to confidently advise on their pros and cons to guide your clients’ decision making?

This course aims to present an overview of surgery and assist you to improve your approach to diagnosis and management of surgical diseases. The resources provided to support your learning in this course include not only notes and journal articles, but also video clips illustrating how to perform procedures, manipulations and operations you can carry out in your own practice. By the end of the course, you will have built a video library of common surgical procedures that you can review prior to performing the procedure. In addition, the course is supplemented by a two-day workshop that combines case studies, surgical demonstrations and an extensive wet lab practical session. Throughout the course, important principles and details are emphasised.

The modules focus on radiographic interpretation, with incorporation of complementary imaging modalities, particularly CT and sonography, to assist in explanations of the radiographic pathological patterns present.
