CAM Veterinary Practitioner
«Canine osteoarthritis is a chronic, devastating disease affecting 35% of all dogs. It was recently classed as a welfare concern by Vet Compass and is one of the leading causes of elective euthanasia. Award-winning Canine Arthritis Management is determined to change that, with the release of their new online course for veterinarians and veterinary nurses/technicians, CAM Veterinary Practitioner.»
CAM Veterinary Practitioner is a comprehensive overview of canine osteoarthritis (OA) and its evidence-based management. Despite being classed as a welfare concern and recognized as one of the leading causes of elective euthanasia, OA is an often overlooked and poorly managed disease. This course will provide the veterinary professional with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to successfully manage OA in their patients. Through case-based learning, the attendee will be given an in-depth look at the identification, diagnosis, and multimodal management of the disease, as well as palliative/end of life care considerations. Emphasis is placed on following an evidence-based multimodal approach to management, with consideration of the biopsychosocial care model and focus on improving client compliance through enhanced communication and owner education. The course is designed to allow the veterinarian or veterinary technician to immediately incorporate their new understanding into their professional role. Included within the 15 modules are 10 hours of instruction, further learning through relevant open access papers and interviews with industry experts, owner education resources, and quizzes to check understanding of the learned concepts.
Upon completion of the course, the veterinary professional should be able to:
Describe the biomechanical, biochemical, and morphological changes which occur within the osteoarthritic joint.
Describe and recognize the different types of pain associated with osteoarthritis and understand their mechanisms and pathways.
Describe the various analgesics available to treat the pain of canine and feline osteoarthritis and identify the pain pathways they act upon.
Understand the multimodal approach to canine arthritis management and describe the various modalities available to manage the disease.
· Confidently manage osteoarthritis cases from identification and diagnosis to formulating a multimodal management plan and navigating end of life care.
