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
