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.”

Vets asked to opt-in to Scottish SPCA fostering programme

News Story 1
 The Scottish SPCA is encouraging veterinary practices to opt into its new fostering programme, by agreeing to register foster animals when approached by one of the foster carers.

The programme goes live in August 2021, and will help to rehabilitate animals under the Scottish SPCA's care until they are able to be properly re-homed. The programme will help the animals to receive care and attention in a stable and happy home environment, as some animals do not cope with a rescue and re-homing centre environment as well as others.

Specific information for veterinary practices on the new programme can be found at www.scottishspca.org/veterinarysurgeons
