Online / Distance Learning Course

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 Small Animal Emergency and Critical Care 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: Diagnostic imaging in ECC: Case-based discussions.

Speaker: Frederike Schiborra Dr.MedVet DipECVDI MRCVS.

Descriptor: Over the course of this week, you will have the opportunity to update your approach to imaging of the emergency patient, looking at different modalities and their utility. Then you will have the opportunity to “test-yourself” on a series of ECC imaging cases. In a fully supported learning environment the cases will be discussed with your colleagues and a veterinary radiologist, fine tuning your interpretation skills. Each case will help you become more confident with interpretation, help you to develop the ability to determine the best imaging approach for certain conditions and raise your awareness of pitfalls in an emergency setting. This is a very practical and interactive week.


Week 2: 09th November 2020

Speakers: The University of Liverpool Small Animal Teaching Hospital Neurology service: Rita Goncalves DVM Dip ECVN MVM FHEA MRCVS RCVS Specialist in Veterinary Neurology and EBVS® European Specialist in Veterinary Neurology, Gemma Walmsley MA VetMB DipECVN MRCVS RCVS Specialist in Veterinary Neurology and EBVS® European Specialist in Veterinary Neurology, Camilla Cooper BVSc, Dip ECVN, MRCVS European Specialist in Veterinary Neurology, Arangan Nagendran BVSc MRCVS DipECVN.

Descriptor: This mini-module will cover recent knowledge on different neurological emergency presentations, covering seizures, inflammatory brain diseases, degenerative intervertebral disc disease and neuromuscular causes for weakness/collapse. These are all common causes of severe neurological dysfunction and if not approached correctly, can result in death or severe disability for the patients. The updates will review the approach to these cases and focus on new developments in terms of diagnostics and treatment options with the aim to optimise the management of these patients. A case discussion including many of the topics covered will be performed live at the end of the online material so any questions or doubts can be cleared at that time. Hopefully, there will be something for everyone!


Week 3: Break week


Week 4: 23rd November 2020

Updates in emergency management of the intoxicated patient.

Speaker: Ludivine Boiron MSC DVM DiplACVECC MRCVS, American specialist of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care

Descriptor: Hello Doc, my dog is tremoring, vomiting profusely and does not seem well. I think he might have picked something up in the park but I’m not sure……

These words will be familiar to all vets working with an ECC caseload as small animal intoxications are seen daily. This will be an exciting week in the ECC mini modules, where the most important categories of intoxication are reviewed – neurological, hepatic, renal, rodenticides and more. Delegates will be brought up-to-date with the latest studies and treatment recommendations after a review of toxin pharmacokinetics and pathophysiology. Case-based group discussions will run all week alongside the learning material, where Ludivine will be on-hand to guide you through management of the intoxicated patient.


Week 5: 30th November 2020

Speaker: Jon Hall MA VetMB CertSAS DipECVS SFHEA MRCVS. RCVS and ECVS recognised specialist in small animal surgery

Descriptor: Veterinary surgeons with an interest in critical care can be uncomfortable with some of the surgical procedures necessary to manage emergency patients. Jon spent several months working as a branch manager with Vets Now and understands the practicalities of real-world emergency and critical care. This week will review stabilisation and management of upper airway obstruction, approaches to challenging cases of lower urinary tract obstruction and practical methods to handle challenging bleeding during abdominal surgery. At the end of the week Jon will host a live online meeting with all module delegates, where case scenarios will be discussed and the week’s learning outcomes will be applied.
