eCPD Lymphoma: Case-based investigations

An eight part video series with Roger Powell and Mark Goodfellow covering the investigation and treatment of lymphoma. Lymphoma is one of the commonest small animal neoplasms but it can often require a multi-disciplinary approach to diagnose and a patient-specific choice of therapy because lymphoma is, in fact, a group of related but distinct diseases.  Understanding the differences between different lymphoma types allows for a more specific diagnosis, better monitoring of treatment and selection of targeted therapy. This maximises the opportunity to choose a well-tolerated protocol and achieve an extended period of good quality of life. This series of videos, uniquely co-lectured by both a specialist clinical pathologist and oncologist, provides an initial brief overview of lymphoma followed by specific case-based discussion on how to investigate, diagnose and then treat many of the various common types of lymphoma faced in practice.  Each case is extensively illustrated with images to run through the diagnosis and management. Topics covered include: Clinical presentation of lymphoma Up to date targeted therapeutic protocols Accurate diagnosis and clinical pathology Case-based discussion – including alimentary lymphoma, cervical masses, extranodal, generalised lymphadenopathy and specific organomegaly www.centralcpd.co.uk www.vet-ecpd.com THE QUALITY OF ATTENDANCE COURSES WITH THE CONVENIENCE OF ONLINE With single subscriptions just £45/month or £395/year and Practice subscriptions just £2000/year for up to 20 people (an amazing £100/person/year), for unlimited access to 100s of hours of fantastic certified CPD for the whole Practice team, no other Veterinary CPD provider comes close.

Brachycephalic obstructive airway disease

Brachycephalic Obstructive Airway Disease – There’s more to this than we thought!   Brachycephalic breeds have become very popular in recent years and represent a significant proportion of canine caseload. This popularity has highlighted the challenges faced by some breeds including brachycephalic obstructive airway syndrome (BOAS) and has stimulated debate both within our profession and in the popular press. One positive outcome has been stimulus for research in this area, which is already helping to improve our understanding and drive changes in the way we treat those affected by BOAS. Whilst there is undoubtedly much more we need to know; recent advances have provided sufficient insight to allow improvements to the way we approach these animals. This course will provide a detailed overview of BOAS including review of the diagnosis, treatment and perioperative care including both traditional techniques and newer options that have become available. The course will focus on a practical approach to the clinical situation and will be useful for any clinician with a significant brachycephalic caseload regardless of whether they would plan to perform surgery themselves.

Dermatology

New Approaches to the Management and Treatment of Atopy and Otitis Monday 20th May 2019   Allergic dermatitis offers a lot of difficulties and confusions for pet owners as well as vets due to its complexity – immune system aberration, physical changes of the epidermis, historical beliefs and newer facts as well as secondary changes which worsen the overall problem. In addition, as it is a chronic disease, cases may need veterinary attention for over 10 years. This needs very sound and clear communication between vet and owner as well as vet to vet, vet to nurses, vet to receptionists and vice versa. This dermatology day aims to firstly provide a ‘red line’ to diagnose the major role players for the individual patient, secondly offer a concept for management, which treatment to use when, which is tailored specifically to each patient (and owner) and lastly discuss communication with pet owners and colleagues. Enabling delegates to go back to their practices not feeling frustrated or anxious about the next itchy patient, but empowered to ‘sort them out’! Topics to be covered include: Allergic work up (dogs versus cats) How to get the most out of your food trial Treating skin infections in the 21st century Treatment modalities of atopic dermatitis Unusual presentations of allergic skin disease Otitis externa www.centralcpd.co.uk www.vet-ecpd.com

ECGs – Understanding The Ups And Downs

Wednesday 3rd July 2019   This one day course is aimed at increasing your familiarity and confidence with both recording and interpreting ECGs. ECGs provide invaluable information about heart rate and rhythm in our canine and feline patients. However, ECGs are often underutilised as a diagnostic tool in practice, due to a lack of confidence amongst vets in how to interpret the ECG findings and their clinical significance for the individual patient. Management options for the different arrhythmias can cause confusion. This course will aim to simplify arrhythmia diagnosis and management and will utilise an ECG-reading workshop session, to give delegates hands-on practice in ECG interpretation and plenty of opportunity for informal discussion. Topics to be covered include: How to use your ECG machine and improve the quality of the traces you record How to develop a logical approach to ECG trace interpretation How to identify the different types of bradycardias and tachycardias most commonly encountered in our canine and feline patients How to recognise the clinical significance of these different arrhythmias, to enable you to choose the most appropriate management options Reinforce your knowledge and understanding of canine and feline arrhythmias through case study examples and a practical ECG workshop component www.centralcpd.co.uk www.vet-ecpd.com

Minimising Canine Stress

Minimising Canine Stress In The Practice Setting And Dealing With Challenging Patients 26th November 2019    When patients are challenging it is all too easy to misinterpret their behaviour and overlook the potential for them to be experiencing negative emotion. Not only is it important to have a better understanding to protect patient welfare but also because challenging patients can increase the potential for human injury. In order to deal effectively with these patients, it is essential to consider the veterinary visit from their perspective and to learn how to anticipate and prevent potentially harmful situations. The concept of feline friendly practice has become well established over recent years but decreasing the potential for the veterinary experience to cause negative emotion and physiological stress has clear benefits whatever the species. During this course delegates will develop skills for dealing with the more challenging canine patients and learn how a behaviourally aware approach can reduce the potential for these issues to arise. Creating canine friendly practices involves decreasing the potential for negative emotion and increasing the triggering of positive emotion. This course is suitable for both vets and nurses. Topics to be covered include: Seeing the veterinary visit from a canine perspective Creating “canine friendly practice” protocols Understanding species-specific coping strategies and their role in minimising the negative emotional impact of veterinary visits. Developing effective strategies for dealing with behaviourally challenging patients How to conduct a practice stress audit – benefits for patient welfare and for the practice bottom line www.centralcpd.co.uk www.vet-ecpd.com
