137422| Royal Veterinary College| Webinar Plus: Healthy and happy animals: Welfare beyond the five freedoms|

 

Monday 23rd January to Sunday 19th February 2023

 

£379.00

Key Areas

  • The evolution of welfare (definitions, legislation, research)
  • Developments in ethology, anthrozoology and animal ethics
  • One Health and welfare – lessons from human medicine to improve animal welfare
  • Case studies – practical examples of improving animal welfare and suggestions for how they can be adapted and implemented in different contexts and/or for different species

About this course

Do you want to ensure your patients are provided with optimal conditions that will enable them to thrive? Would you like to know how you can best support patient emotional wellbeing as well as physical health? Would you like a better understanding of animal behaviour and its relationship to welfare?

Traditional approaches to animal welfare focus on the prevention of suffering. However, recent advances in animal welfare science, ethology (animal behaviour), anthrozoology (the study of human animal interactions) and philosophy (specifically animal ethics) have highlighted the cognitive and emotional capacities of many animal species, with implications for welfare. Much progressive research argues that good animal welfare requires a shift away from simply preventing animal suffering and a move towards the promotion of positive, pleasurable experiences and states. When animals are happy they stand a better chance of recovering from illness or injury, or of maintaining good health and wellbeing. While there are many strategies routinely employed by veterinary professionals to help reduce patient stress and promote positive physical and emotional states (e.g. the use of pheromone sprays or the creation of cat friendly areas of the waiting room) there is scope to do much more to cater for the species-specific and individual needs of the diverse array of animal patients encountered in contemporary veterinary practice.

This course aims to provide you with an overview of recent developments in animal welfare science, ethology and anthrozoology (incorporating animal ethics). The course also aims to provide you with an understanding of the relevance of some of these developments for different aspects of veterinary practice. Through the use of illustrative case studies (focussing on, for example, animals in zoos, companion animals, disabled animals, working animals, laboratory animals, equines and livestock) you will be introduced to some of the ways in which animal welfare can be improved in light of this emergent knowledge. These practical examples can then be adapted and implemented to benefit your patients.

Why do this course?
This course aims to provide you with an understanding of what constitutes abuse, and an overview of All veterinary professionals have a duty to protect the wellbeing of the animals in their care. Understanding the relationships between animal behaviour and welfare, and appreciating the different factors that can shape behaviour and impact on welfare (including species-specific and individual needs) means you will be better placed to support your patients. 

This course can be purchased on its own or as part of a series with:

Webinar Plus: Anthrozoology for veterinary professionals
Webinar Plus: Recognising and responding to animal abuse in veterinary practice 

Course fee: £379 for one course, £699 for two courses or £999 for all three. Discount will be applied at checkout.

137406| Royal Veterinary College| Webinar: Practising quality-of-life assessment driven small animal medicine|

Course date friday 11th November 2022

Course fee £50.00

Key Areas

  • The scientific evidence that makes quality of life measurable
  • Currently available tools to measure quality of life in pets
  • The effects of quality of life measurement on the patient, the owner and the veterinary team
  • How you can start making quality of life assessment central to your consults TOMORROW

About this course

We all agree that quality of life of our patients is “everything”. In contrast, as a profession we all pay surprisingly little attention to measuring and monitoring quality of life. Let’s change that! 

Our veterinary oath dictates we should do everything in the interests of the welfare of the animal under our care; we are also urged to practice evidence-based medicine. In order to comply with both demands, it is essential we start measuring, documenting and monitoring the quality of life of our patients. Treatment decisions, diagnostic decisions and even euthanasia decisions should be guided by this most important parameter. But if we don’t measure this most important parameter, how can we be sure we are doing the right thing?

Why do this course?
This course will be of interest if you want to learn how to make scientifically validated quality of life assessment central to your consultations

The webinar will run from 12.00pm to 2.00pm London time.

Recorded versions will be available to purchase for £30 approximately two weeks after the completion of all live webinars

137405| Royal Veterinary College| Webinar Plus: Recognising and responding to animal abuse in veterinary practice|

Monday 7th November to Sunday 4th December 2022

 

£379.00

Key Areas

  • Defining abuse
  • Identifying animal abuse in veterinary practice
  • Case studies including hoarding, neglect, sexual abuse, violence
  • Legislation designed to protect animal welfare
  • Resources for veterinary professionals
  • Veterinary social work
  • The link between animal and human abuse
  • Impacts and support for victims and front-line staff (rescue, rehabilitation, compassion fatigue, burn out, PTSD)

About this course

Have you ever encountered patients showing signs of neglect or presenting with what appear to be non - accidental injuries? Are you aware of the relevant legislation in place to protect animals from abuse and suffering? Would you like to know more about what you can do to help if you suspect your patients or human clients are victims of abuse?

Animal welfare legislation makes it a criminal offence to cause unnecessary suffering to an animal. Everyone responsible for an animal, including owners and veterinary professionals, has a duty of care to protect that animal’s health and welfare. This duty of care is also clearly stated in the declaration of admission to the RCVS. Compromised welfare, which leads to unnecessary animal suffering, can have numerous causes ranging from unintentional neglect to intentional cruelty. Unintentional neglect can often be easy for veterinary staff to detect, for example clients might admit to feeding an inappropriate diet because they didn’t know any better. It is then relatively straightforward to intervene and address this neglect by providing the client with appropriate information. Intentional cruelty on the other hand can be much more difficult to identify, and even when cruelty is suspected many frontline veterinary staff may not know what steps they can or should take to intervene on an animal’s behalf.

Why do this course?
This course aims to provide you with an understanding of what constitutes abuse, and an overview of the legal and extra-legal ways in which animal abuse can be defined, measured, punished and prevented. You will be invited to explore the obligations veterinary professionals have towards protecting the animals in their care, and consider how to negotiate potential conflicts that might arise around safeguarding animal welfare, maintaining client confidentiality and disclosing examples of compromised welfare. You will also examine the links between animal cruelty and inter-human violence. Animal abuse will be explored through sociological, psychological, anthropological and philosophical lenses to develop a multi-disciplinary anthrozoological perspective that speaks to the needs and interests of animal patients whose welfare is at the core of contemporary veterinary practice, their human guardians, and frontline veterinary staff who have a vital role to play in identifying and preventing animal abuse

This course can be purchased on its own or as part of a series with:
