Develop your approach to the diagnosis and management of small animal medical cases that you’re likely to see in your consulting room on this course. Using real-life clinical cases encountered in primary care practice, we’ll cover a wide range of disorders including those of the gastrointestinal, hepatobiliary, endocrine, urogenital, respiratory, haematological and immune systems. You’ll learn how to identify salient problems, formulate differential diagnosis lists and diagnostic plans, interpret the results of diagnostic tests such as blood and imaging studies and understand the latest treatment options. Essential theory and helpful practical tips on performing diagnostic techniques will also be interspersed amongst cases. We’ll discuss the current recommended management of these conditions, drawing on experience from your tutor and the veterinary literature. You’ll have access to a Discussion Forum for posing questions, sharing cases, conversation and debate with your peers and the speaker.
What You’ll Learn:-
- How to apply a problem-orientated approach to case examples
- How to recognise how to investigate a range of cases seen in primary care practice
- Accurate interpretation of clinical pathology and diagnostic imaging results
- Know when and how to carry out selected diagnostic and therapeutic procedures
- Appraise the evidence-base for the effective management of common small animal medical disorders
All of your course materials are recorded and you have unlimited access for a full 12 months. Your tutor support and interaction runs until 2 weeks after the end of the scheduled course date.
