133763| University of Liverpool| NEW! - Equine Oncology for Practitioners|

NEW! - Equine Oncology for Practitioners

**PLEASE NOTE DATE CHANGE** NOW 29 & 30 OCT 2019

Oncology in equine practice can be challenging. Other than cutaneous tumours, neoplasia in the horse is relatively uncommon which hinders advances in diagnosis and treatment. Recognition and management of internal neoplasia is even more difficult, especially as typically we may only start to see clinical signs once there is organ dysfunction due to either metastatic spread or space occupying lesions. In spite of these issues there have been advances in recent years and this two-day course uses a body systems approach to focus on current knowledge. 

This exciting new addition to our CPD programme is an unmissable overview for anyone in equine practice.

Lunch and refreshments provided.

Course Code: EQ1908

Day One includes a brief introduction to the basics of cancer biology and treatment as well as a review of the epidemiology of cancer in horses. We will then review cutaneous tumours, their diagnosis and treatment options including medical, surgical and more novel approaches such as radiotherapy.
Day One will also consider oncular and periocular neoplasia. In the afternoon there will be practical sessions on FNA and Trucut biopsy techniques as well as practical sessions on 3rd eyelid removal as a treatment option for squamous cell carcinoma. The day will conclude with some case-based discussions and examples of clinical cases.
Day Two considers intra-abdominal and intrathoracic neoplasia as well as tumours of the urogenital tract. Haematopoietic tumours (lymphoma/ leukaemia) and endocrine tumours are also covered alongside tumours of bone and dental origin. Finally we will consider other tumours such as those affecting the nervous or endocrine system. There will also be lectures on paraneoplastic syndromes and a helpful guide on 'what can yourpathologist do for you' to help with sample collection and diagnosis. There will be a practical session on ultrasound as a tool for diagnosis of internal neoplasia as well as decision making in penile surgery for cases of penile squamous cell carcinoma.
This exciting new addition to our CPD programme is an unmissable overview for anyone in equine practice.

but also the site was not redeveloped once it had closed. Historic
England consider the old factory as being of national importance
and in order to save it for posterity they have, with the help of
the National Lottery Heritage Fund, turned into a museum. The
museum aims to become The National Museum of Bricks and
Brickmaking and already has a large collection of bricks and
brickmaking machinery.


The learning outcomes of this course provide an understanding of:

The afternoon’s course will consider in depth two aspects of
building conservation:


• The history and development of timber framed structures
• Problems of decay and methods of repair
This venue contains a wide range of historic timber framed
buildings that you can examine in detail. Founded in the late
1960s as a site for the relocation of local historic buildings that
were going to be demolished. It is now one of the best museums
of its type in Europe and reflects the development of, particularly
timber framed, buildings from the medieval period to the 19th
century. The museum has also pioneered evaluation, recording
and repair systems and has contributed to the development of a
national philosophy of historic building repair and good practice.
The buildings offer an educational way to give insight into their
construction and use. Many of the buildings are in their original
built form, whilst others show a sequence of changes spanning a
number of centuries.


The course will take the form of a tour of the buildings for first
hand observations of the buildings construction and repair.


The learning outcomes of this course provide an understanding of:
• the historic development of timber frames and roof structures

133757| University of Portsmouth| Large Scale Urban Property Regeneration In London|

VENUE: Battersea, London
DATE: Wednesday 20 May 2020
TIME: 1.50pm to 5.10pm

An iconic 1980’s photograph of a hard-hatted Margaret Thatcher

operating a digger, documents the PM endorsing a multi-million
pound resurrection of the decommissioned Battersea Power
Station, a project led by the, then, Alton Towers owner, John
Broome, into the ‘world’s greatest theme park’. Along with other
initiatives to follow, this was to be a victim of the vagaries of
economics.


Despite close proximity to Central London, lands bordering
south of the Thames between Vauxhall and Chelsea bridges,
including the Power Station itself, were destined to languish for
several further decades, a hinterland of light industry and semidereliction.
In 2008, the US State Department reached agreement
with developer Ballymore, for the acquisition of a site in the Nine
Elms Opportunity Area within the borough of Wandsworth, for
the establishment of a new Embassy. This proved the catalyst
required to spur this stretch of the river, into what many now
acknowledge as ‘Europe’s biggest regeneration project’. Pass
through the area today and you face construction and renewal on
all sides.


This course involves a walking tour of Vauxhall, Nine Elms and
Battersea.


The learning outcomes of this course provide an understanding of:
• An appreciation of the complexity of urban regeneration
• Understanding of mixed use developments
• An explanation of synergy provided by individual developments
to other developments
• The relevance of a sense of space and place in design

Course Costs

  • The standard price for a half day course is £105.00

are below ground. Waterproofing is required when building new
underground structure or refurbishing an existing basement to
provide a usable or habitable space. Waterproofing and drainage
is important and required where groundwater is likely to build up
in the soil and cause hydrostatic pressure (ground water under
pressure) to be exerted on the walls and floors of the basement
structure. Surveyors must be aware of all types of structural
waterproofing systems, British Standard BS8102: 2009, and
the design, planning and installation stages of any structural
waterproofing projects below ground.


The learning outcomes of this course provide an understanding of:
• structural waterproofing
