135289| University of Liverpool| Equine Practice - Online CPD Mini Module|

This 100% online CPD mini-module has been developed and aimed towards the more experienced veterinary surgeon. The module content has been developed by veterinary specialists at the forefront of current veterinary research.

The module will provide you with 25 hours of designation specific CPD. Over four weeks we will cover a different weekly topic in an area in which there may have been changes, advances or controversy in recent years.

The course is taught and tutored by Liverpool and other external veterinary specialists, following a similar format to the University of Liverpool’s CertAVP modules.  With online lectures, discussion boards and weekly MCQ tests designed to help support your learning this short Equine Practice mini-module will provide a fun and interactive way to ensure you keep up to date in your area of interest.

 

Course content:

Week 1: 02nd November 2020

Title: Sinusitis: What’s that smell?  Is it a sinus?  Now how do I treat it?

Speaker: Cajsa Isgren BVetMed MSc CertAVP (ESO, ESST, ED) Dip ECVS MRCVS with Neil Townsend MSc BVSc Cert ES (Soft Tissue) DipECVS DipEVDC (Equine) MRCVS and Justine Kane-Smyth BVM&S MScR Dip.ECVS MRCVS

Descriptor: The horse’s sinuses are an area of complex anatomy which is very prone to infection.  How do you determine when seven  days oral antibiotics are not going to cut it and you need to do further investigations?   Or perhaps the nasal discharged initially improved but has some come back with a vengeance?  Is there a fractured tooth and you are concerned it might be infected?  Or is there a supernumerary tooth or a deep diastema on the same as the nasal discharge?  This week will cover investigation and treatment of both dental related and primary sinusitis in horses and how to distinguish between the two?  What about when you have removed a tooth already, but the horse still has recurrent nasal discharge?  This week will also cover some of the possible complications following sinus surgery such as suturitis, surgical site infections and non-healing sockets following tooth removal.  

 

Week 2: 09th November 2020

Title: Dermatology- Got an itch to scratch?  Advancing the treatment of pruritic ponies and horses

Speaker: Ben Curnow BVSc Cert AVP(EP) MRCVS with Professor Emeritus Derek C Knottenbelt OBE, BVM&S, DVM&S, DipECEIM, DACVIM,  MRCVS

Descriptor: Itchy horses are a very common occurrence in practice, and finding out what is causing a horse to scratch can be formulated from a concise differential list and thorough sampling.  But how can we treat these cases? With so many lotions, potions and skin products on the market where is the evidence for these products? Are we working well within the cascade? Are there adverse consequences to any of these treatments?

This week, we will attempt to categorise the treatments available to us for pruritic horses, starting with those used for ectoparaistes, followed by those used for allergic horses. This will be followed by some novel cases discussions, where you can suggest your preferred treatment methods and the evidence you have obtained to justify your choices.  We are absolutely thrilled to have Prof Derek Knottenbelt MRCVS joining us as a guest speaker for this week. 

 

Week 3: Break week

 

Week 4: 23rd November 2020

Title: Troublesome foot abscesses... what else could it be?

Speaker: Cajsa Isgren BVetMed MSc CertAVP (ESO, ESST, ED) Dip ECVS MRCVS

Descriptor: “No hoof, no horse” still holds true today!  The horse’s foot is an area hugely prone to traumatic injury and with complex anatomy this area is further complicated by limitations of traditional diagnostic imaging due to presence of the hoof capsule.  Have you ever treated a foot abscess which proved to be more than ‘just’ a foot abscess?  The lectures this week will focus on what else could be going on when you have a persistently or severely lame horse which blocks to the foot with or without finding a nice big convincing pocket of pus. When is it time to radiograph and/or look to undertake advanced imaging?   Could there in fact be a foot penetration or a pedal bone fracture which has not yet been identified? Or has the abscess actually developed into pedal osteitis and needs to be derided further or is there an underlying keratoma which is causing these recurrent abscesses?

 

Week 5: 30th November 2020

Title: Opthalmology- Uveitis- Recent updates and novel treatment development

Speaker: Fernando Malalana DVM DipECEIM PGCertT&LHE FHEA MRCVS

Descriptor: The final week deals with the frustrating and usually recurring ophthalmic issue that is uveitis.  This   condition can be infuriating and incredibly painful for the horse, the owner and the treating veterinarian.  But this week we delve deep into the most up to date research on potential causes for this disease.   And following on from this we are brought right up to speed on what progress has been made to try and definitively treat it.  In conjunction with several case studies presented by our world leading expert on the condition and some MCQs we are confident that you will be in a much stronger position to tackle this painful condition head on in the field.

Updates in Cardiology

Speakers: The University of Liverpool Small Animal Teaching Hospital Cardiology service:  Jo Dukes McEwan, Maria Mateos Panero, Urszula Bartoszuk, Mattia Basili and Ela Barczak

Descriptor: The presenting signs for potential cardiac disease may also be similar to conditions affecting other body systems, especially coughing, dyspnoea, exercise intolerance or syncope. In addition, some patients might have concurrent cardiac and other systemic disease, both contributing to the presenting signs or clinical signs identified from physical examination. Pulmonary hypertension may be due to a plethora of systemic, respiratory or cardiac diseases, and regardless of cause, may result in significant cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, impacting on quality of life. Your colleagues from the cardiology service are addressing some of these common issues which may flex the most astute medical mind in these sessions below.

  1. Approach to the coughing dog: is it cardiac?  Mattia Basili
  2. Approach to the syncopal patient. Maria Mateos Panero
  3. The dyspnoeic cat: Cardiac or not? Ela Barczak
  4. Pulmonary hypertension – how to recognise it, what causes it and how do we treat it? Urszula Bartoszuk

 

Finally, to discuss one or more problem cases which present with these problems, we will have a zoom discussion group, on the Thursday evening. Feel free to bring your problem cases to share with us (you can share your screen with radiographs or clinical data). Members of the cardiology service will have one or more additional challenging ones for us all to discuss.

135186| The Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists| AACP Fascia and Anatomy - Peterborough - November 2020|

This one day course looks at the apparent similarities between the Tendino-Muscular Meridians (from Chinese Medicine practice) and the theory and structure of the Anatomy Trains approach to myofascial linkage within the body.

Starting with a challenging overview of 'what' the meridians may represent, the day then focuses on the binding sites or 'stations' – areas of tension/structural gathering of tissue, which if released can effect a much larger area, and change function within the myofascial system.

The Tendino-Muscular meridians or Sinew meridians will be explored first in terms of muscular areas that they cover. Anatomy Trains will follow.

Exploring the common ground between these two systems, but using acupuncture to release these tight areas, can offer a new approach to treatment – notably in effecting large areas and patterns of dysfunction quickly, and allowing points distal to the areas being worked on with manual therapy to be used as an adjunct to treatment.

135184| The Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists| AACP Acupuncture Foundation Course - Cheshire - October 2020|

This course is divided equally between direct contact time and self-directed learning. It is designed to offer participants a level of knowledge, skill and understanding that will allow them to practice acupuncture in a safe and appropriate manner, in a clinical setting. The course provides a Western medical approach to acupuncture - grounded in current research evidence rather than in traditional Chinese philosophical thinking. This course does not cover the traditional Chinese medical approach to acupuncture, except where Western scientific theory and evidence can be used to explain concepts of traditional Chinese medicine (e.g. fascial planes and meridians).

Participants will be encouraged to critically evaluate their own clinical practice and where appropriate, challenge the current evidence base. This course is designed to provide participants with a rationale for using acupuncture as an adjunctive treatment for the management of common musculoskeletal pain conditions. Topics covered include the laboratory and radiological research which is used to explain the mechanism of acupuncture analgesia; current evidence from acupuncture clinical trials research; and the non-specific "placebo" effects associated with acupuncture analgesia. In addition to needling classical acupuncture points, participants will be introduced to the concept of myofascial trigger points, and the use of acupuncture needling for pain associated with myofascial trigger points.

Students must:
- Have HCPC physiotherapy registration
- Have CSP membership
- Be able to practise acupuncture in a clinical setting between the course parts
- Give the tutor informed consent to receive repetitive needling (with particular regard to being or trying to become pregnant)
- Be able to treat three separate patients in a safe and legal environment for their case studies. Failure to do so may affect your professional HCPC registration. (see AACP website for safety guidelines)
- Attend all 6 days of the course

135078| ONCORE ePD| The Veterinary Nurse’s Role in Dermatology Clinics|

Dermatology is a key area of clinical work in primary practice, and the role that nurses can play in assisting with management of dermatological conditions has historically been overlooked.

Nurses can and should play an integral role in history taking, diagnostics, client support, improving adherence to treatment – and much more.

This course aims to offer guidance on setting up a Dermatology Nursing Clinic, including tackling any pitfalls which may arise. Through tutor guidance, peer support and shared experiences you will become more equipped to develop the clinic within your own practice environment and around your own clinic style.

This type of clinic requires knowledge of a number of simple diagnostic skills and microscopy, and this course aims to assist you with becoming more confident on how to perform these, the equipment to use and when to select which tests. This course will also look at clarifying the role nurses can play in selection and administration of therapies to help achieve case resolution.

This course will help you feel more confident in performing dermatology nursing generally, have an understanding of the nurse’s role in a vet-led team, and the delivery of a dermatology clinic service; and aims to be valuable whether you are just starting in dermatology nursing or developing an already existing service.

This course is endorsed by the Veterinary Nursing Dermatology group.
