Course Description

 

Day 1 (Neurology) is aimed at equine practitioners with an interest in neurology. The course aims to provide practitioners with a practical approach to neurological examination of the equine patient as well as specific guidance on diagnosis and management of patients with headshaking, ataxia, CNS trauma and seizures. The course will be a combination of interactive lectures, hands-on practical sessions and case based discussion.

 

Delegates are encouraged to bring along videos or examples of cases they have seen to supplement the group discussion. Practical sessions will involve a systematic guide to neurological examination of the equine patient as well as examination of selected neurological cases supervised by specialist speakers.

This comprehensive neurology workshop is structured to be suitable for delegates working towards and RCVS CertAVP in equine medicine but is also equally useful for those wishing to refresh their knowledge and skills in equine neurology at an advanced practitioner level.

 

 

Day 2 (Ophthalmology) aims to develop practitioners' diagnostic and therapeutic skills in the investigation and mangement of opthalmic disease in horses. The day will be divided into comprehensive lectures and small group hands-on practical sessions using cadaver specimens supervised by our specialist speakers. 

 

Some of the lecture based material will be interactive to encourage delegate  participation on a range of topics such as ocular findings at PPE and decision making in difficult and chronic cases such as non-healing corneal ulcers and recurrent uveitis.

 

The practical sessions in the afternoon will focus on familiarising delegates with key skills such as placement of subpalpebral lavage systems, surgical repair of eyelid lacerations, ophthalmic nerve blocks and ocular ultrasound.
