CPD Days

Our CPD days are currently on hold for 2020. We shall reassess, in accordance with government guidelines, in due course. In the meantime, we usually hold three formats, details as below. Do contact us on info@vet-oa.com if you wish to express interest.

2 Day OA Clinic course‚Äč

This 2-day course will provide vets and veterinary nurses with the knowledge, clinical skills, tools, support and confidence to implement an OA clinic in small animal practice and ultimately offer a more complete and more effective treatment and management strategy for osteoarthritis patients. This will be delivered through a mix of lectures and practical skill sessions and will encourage and support you in setting up your OA clinics in practice to provide high standards of diagnosis, management and monitoring of cases.

1 Day Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Course

Musculoskeletal ultrasound is an important, non-invasive but underused method to help with diagnosis of musculoskeletal disease in dogs. This lecture and practical-based course will cover it's use in small animal practice and provide you with the knowledge and practical skills to enable you to use it as part of your work-up for lameness cases.

1 Day Intra-articular injection course

Intra-articular injections can be used in the multimodal management of OA in companion animals with great success if used correctly. This course will cover the products that can be used, what you are aiming to achieve by using them, and when to use them. The second part of the day will involve a wet-lab to teach you how to perform joint injections so you can be confident going back into practice to start implementing them into your OA strategy.
