65925| British Small Animal Veterinary Association| BSAVA Scottish Region - Wound Management|

26 October 2014 10:00 - 26 October 2014 16:00


The wounds encountered in veterinary practice range from clean surgical incisions through to infected traumatic wounds. Although all wounds go through the same stages as they heal, the way in which wounds should be managed during these stages can vary significantly. This course will provide delegates with the information required to make informed decisions both in the management of wounds they create during surgery and those that they are presented with in the clinic e.g., following trauma. Through the use of case examples, delegates will develop a better understanding of how the choices they make when managing wounds in different situations may influence the outcome of the wound.

65924| British Small Animal Veterinary Association| BSAVA North West Region - Endocrinology: a matter of interpretation|

24 September 2014 20:00 - 24 September 2014 21:30


A confidence building session on interpreting endocrinology lab results.

The interpretation of endocrine diagnostic test results including thyroid and adrenal is perceived by many to be complex and confusing. Through a number of mini-cases and a few more detailed cases, this session will build confidence in the interpretation of lab results in situations of both common and uncommon endocrine diagnostic dilemmas.

The interactive session will cover example adrenal, thyroid and parathyroid/calcium cases. Delegates are also free to share their own cases and diagnostic dilemmas.

65922| Multiple Locations| Low Stress Handling in Cats|

COURSE SUMMARY


This interactive course will focus on the use of feline-friendly handling techniques that will reduce the problems associated with anxious or fearful cats, thereby increasing productivity, safety and job satisfaction for veterinary staff too.

 

We will discuss handling strategies that can be tailored to the individual cat and situation, and general changes to the environment to help most feline patients adapt better in the clinic.

 

We will also explore the advice to be given to prepare cats and owners in advance of visits; as well as how to reintegrate cats into the home following a hospital stay.

 

LEARNING OUTCOMES

By the end of this module, successful candidates will be able to:

  • Understand the reasoning behind the importance of low stress handling of cats
  • Know and apply principles of low stress cat handling, pre-emptive measures and trouble shooting within the practice
  • Be able to advise clients on helpful techniques to reduce cat stress before, during and after travel to the practice

65802| Multiple Locations| Fire Safety in Schools|

Vulnerable groups of people will often need a higher level of care and consideration when designing buildings. It has been acknowledged that children are at particular risk in the event of a fire as their ‘life experience’ will not lead them to react in the same manner as adults. In addition children will need greater instruction and assistance in escaping from a fire.

Building Bulletin 100 has been developed to address the particular fire safety issues involved in designing a school and providing suitable provisions for means of escape for children.

One of the major causes of fire in schools is arson and for a number of reasons, deliberate fires started in numerous locations simultaneously, does not fit with our design assumptions in relation to fire. Discussions on the steps that can be taken in design and management to reduce the risk of arson will also be explored.

This one day seminar will look at the contents of the guidance on Fire Safety in Schools and you will gain an understanding of the practical implications on the design of educational premises. In addition to examining the physical performance of the building, the roles of passive and active fire safety measures, together with effective management will be considered.
