BVNA Congress 2016

BVNA Congress 2016

The British Veterinary Nursing Association is confident that BVNA congress 2016 will be the most exciting and successful yet.

Megan Brashear CVT VTS(ECC) is flying in all the way from Orgeon in the USA to share her ECC expertise in numerous lectures this year. This is especially exciting as Megan lectures internationally and has previously lectured in the UK at BSAVA congress in 2015 and her podcasts for On the Floor @Dove are being world renowned.

Of course Megan is not the only speaker at the BVNA conference this year, BVNA are pleased to announce that the ECC and anaesthesia line up this year will include Louise O’Dwyer, Sam McMillan, Matt Gurney, Carl Bradbook, Laura Tobin, Shailen Jasani and Elle Haskey.

Anaesthesia takes the symposium slot for the conference and as such spans two days this year to provide access to this popular subject.

Grass roots nursing also features heavily this year and includes Helen Ballantyne on the subject of nursing care bundles, Sarah Collins and Isaru Gajanayake on numerous nutrition issues and a stream dedicated to animal behaviour organised and lectured by the ABTC.

A dedicated student stream also features alongside the massively popular science café and research presentations. This time the student stream has been designed specifically by students for students with help from the British Association for Veterinary Nursing Students (BAVNS).

BVNA is also proud to champion and support the equine veterinary nurses and strive to provide dedicated and affordable CPD with another day dedicated to all things equine impeccably organised by Bonny Millar and following the huge success of last years equine symposium. 

Finally the three day conference would not be complete without a review of the profession with VN futures and hot topics such as the NPL, reflective practice and evidence based veterinary nursing.
