Glasgow and Hartlepool are the next ports for call for ‘Saving lives: Emergency Nursing – Triage and beyond,’ a road show aimed at veterinary nurses with Paul Aldridge MRCVS and Louise O’Dwyer RVN as speakers. It aims to help VNs:
- understand shock and why it’s a killer
- save lives through performing efficient and prompt triage
- stabilise dyspnoeic patients
The road show has so far visited venues in Manchester and Birmingham. Sophie Williamson, RVN at the Tividale branch of White Cross Vets, who attended in Birmingham, commented: “The content covered is not widely available for RVNS and was of a much higher level than is generally available in text books. The speakers were brilliant and the day was very well organised. I found it very useful.”
The road show arrives in Glasgow on Wednesday 30 October and travels on to Hartlepool on Thursday 31 October. Further events are scheduled for Swindon, St Albans and Exeter in late November. Each event starts at 2.00 pm and finishes at 8.00 pm. Places are limited so early booking is advisable. It is being organised by veterinary CPD provider Improve International.
The cost per delegate is £99.00 plus VAT, including refreshments and a light supper. Full details of venue information and dates are available at www.improvecpd.com
