Join us for this day course where we will be discussing common gastro-intestinal conditions seen in general practice. The whole day will be centred around practical sessions and case-based discussions to ensure you receive a grounding in gastroenterology in general practice. 

Prior to the practical day you will be provided with online learning resources that we would recommend completing before attending the day. These online lectures will provide you with the theory to be able to confidently complete the practical day.

Through the lectures and practical sessions this course will ensure you are able to determine the best diagnostic approach driven by evidence-based medicine and you will receive plenty of interaction with our course speakers to ensure you get the most out of the day and learn from some of the best in the profession.

Following this course you will be able to:

  • Confidently examine, form and carry out a plan for a horse with abdominal pain, choke, liver disease, weight loss or diarrhoea.
  • Know how to carry out further investigations, including where indicated basic abdominal ultrasound.
  • Formulate yard specific biosecurity plans for a tailored worming plan.
  • Have confidence in their decision to refer.
