Veterinary Instrumentation Orthopaedic Symposium 2021 (RESCHEDULED)
Friday, 17th September 2021 to Saturday, 18th September 2021
Due to the recent changes to COVID restrictions this event has been rescheduled to Friday 1st April to Sunday 3rd April 2022.
The Inaugural Veterinary Instrumentation Orthopaedic Symposium - “Everything Thoracic Limb” is a two-day Orthopaedic Symposium designed to grow orthopaedic knowledge within your practice in order to “Do more and treat better”.
The Symposium is split into separate 2-day Veterinary and Nursing streams, with a practical workshop option on Day 3.
The Veterinary stream will incorporate five of Australia’s leading Orthopaedic Specialists and CPD presenters. It will explore in-depth the cervical spine, shoulder, elbow and carpus, using both presentation and small group, case-based and scientifically supported discussions. This aims to target the most common thoracic limb lameness cases seen in Australian small animal practice. This stream provides clinicians with improved practical knowledge surrounding lameness evaluation, investigation modalities and treatment options.
The Nursing stream will target all aspects of specialised Orthopaedic Veterinary Nursing, aiming to ensure clinic Orthopaedic patients are treated to Gold Standard care. Topics include anatomy and physiology, pre-anaesthesia checks, anaesthesia and pain relief for Orthopaedic patients, hospital care, physiotherapy, post-operative care and nutritional management.
Incorporating presentations from Orthopaedic Veterinary Specialists, leading Nursing and Surgical Nursing presenters, the Nursing stream will culminate with presentations on managing stress and resilience as a part of your own self-care.
