New online learning resource for vet nurses
BVNA members can watch most of the On Demand content for free in the BVNA members' portal.
BVNA launches Vimeo on Demand Channel. 

The BVNA has launched a new online learning resource for veterinary nurses.

Vimeo On Demand, available through BVNA's website, broadcasts new CPD videos as well as interviews and lectures. The channel also contains a CPD resource library, recordings from BVNA's This Is Us event, and will be updated with monthly CPD online events.

Jo Oakden, BVNA president said: “We're really excited about the launch of our CPD Video On Demand channel. This is a really great way to watch the CPD that is relevant to you without CPD subscriptions.

“COVID has encouraged us to look at ways we can diversify to share our professional content with our members and non-members: we have all had to become flexible in the way we work, and our busy schedules often mean we cannot always commit to a specific time for a CPD session.”

BVNA Members can watch most of the On Demand content for free in the BVNA members' portal, including all BVNA COVID videos. The professional content is available to all at a charge of £8 per view, however, users pay a reduced price of £5 to participate in the live recording of the CPD sessions.

Jo added: “There are loads of reasons to become a BVNA member, we are working tirelessly in the background to make sure we represent your voices, help develop our profession and provide you with the education and support you need to excel in your area of our profession.”

 The Society for Companion Animal Studies (SCAS) has announced that applications are now open for the second round of its three-year funding scheme to support research into the human-animal bond.

This year SCAS is looking for research that focuses on the issues surrounding pets in housing, particularly projects looking at:

- the impact of current, or historic, pet related housing legislation
- an assessment of incident, type and cost of damage caused by pets in housing
- the views of landlords, care institution or housing association staff, in relation to pets and housing
- stakeholder perceptions of pets and housing insurance schemes.

There are eight funding grants available, awarding between £1,500 and £10,000. Applications close on 30 April 2021.

2021 NOAH Compendium now available

The 2021 edition of the NOAH Compendium of Data Sheets for Animal Medicines has been published.

Published annually by NOAH, this book is sent to every veterinary practice in the UK for free. The 2021 edition includes an even larger range of products than previous years.

Chief executive Dawn Howard stated that NOAH will shortly be launching a survey for practices on the Compendiums effectiveness.

She added: "Our survey will give users of the Compendium the opportunity to say how they think we can improve it to assist them in prescribing veterinary medicines and advising animal keepers on their use. We look forward to getting your views."
