The negative physiological effects of poorly controlled pain are well documented and as veterinarians we recognise the importance of using effective pain relief strategies both with respect to disease management, patient care and well-being.
This course is ideal for vets who want to brush up on their knowledge of analgesics and be updated on the latest techniques available for managing acute and chronic pain in small animals. It aims to develop your knowledge and clinical decision making by providing an update and review of drug efficacy and administration techniques, as well as taking an evidence based approach to the use of ‘off-label’ opioids.
