CPD Solutions helps vets stay fresh and at the forefront

While there is no quick-fix for that groggy ‘just got out of bed’ feeling after a long night on call or an antidote to the distinctive aroma that often accompanies a day in practice, CPD Solutions’ brand new course is the perfect way for vets to stay fresh when it comes to their knowledge and practical skills. The three day GP Refresh attendance course is ideal for vets wanting to get a really good update on several key small animal practice areas or for those returning to work or starting work in the UK. With a plethora of practical as well as theoretical offerings, the course will help boost confidence in the way vets investigate, medicate and operate.

It’s no secret that the ins and outs of small animal general practice are complex, diverse and can be immensely challenging says Susie Coughlan, Managing Director of CPD Solutions, “Beginning back in general practice or starting work in a new country can be seriously daunting and there’s nothing worse than feeling out of your depth. Add to this the fact that best practice is forever evolving and it’s clear that vets in practice have got themselves a tough task to keep up. One of the great things about the GP Refresh course is that it allows vets to revisit the essentials in a friendly and supportive environment.”

Taking place on the 4th – 6th of August in Warwickshire, GP Refresh will see subject specialists cover a whole host of vital topics, from medical must-knows to the do’s and don’ts of common dermatological dilemmas and emergency care essentials – plus much more in between. Delegates will learn how to interpret lung patterns, the best way to unblock cats and what really gets wounds to heal, as well as covering those crucial skin conditions and cutting edge anaesthetic protocols and agents. On top of tackling the theory, delegates can get stuck in to a whole host of hands-on activities including sessions on otitis externa, inserting chest drains, film reading, common abdominal procedures and sutures, staples and clips among others. Common questions such as, ‘What do these blood sample results actually mean?’ and ‘Which wound dressing?’ will be addressed throughout the course, with delegates given the opportunity to get answers to any of their own queries, however big or small.

Susie says the course is more than just a great learning opportunity, “Emphasis will not only be placed on working up and managing cases effectively by eliminating guesswork but also on ensuring maximum enjoyment. The course offers a great opportunity to meet other like-minded members of the profession and is a wonderful way to help get the most fulfilment from a role in small animal practice.”

So, vets looking to revitalise, revive and restore their knowledge and practical skills needed for small animal general practice should reserve their place or sign up now to avoid disappointment by visiting http://www.cpd-solutions.com/info/gprefresh/
