people iconWho is the course for?

This course is for: RVNs, student veterinary nurses, practice owners, partners, vets, vet students, and veterinary care assistants.

book iconAbout the Course

This discussion forum is aimed at anyone that wants to increase their knowledge of ambulatory nursing in equine practice. During the session the speakers will lead delegates through procedures that can be safely performed out on the road by Registered Veterinary Nurses. The organisation, safety factors, and implementation of the role in practice will also be discussed, as well as the financial considerations involved.

Schedule 3 of the Veterinary Surgeons Act 1966 will be discussed in detail in relation to appropriate procedures that may be performed by RVNs out on the road. The speakers will discuss their experience of ambulatory nursing and guide delegates as to how to implement the role in their current practices. It is hoped that a general protocol could be decided upon by the end of the session and this could be used by any practice to implement the role.
