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.”

Budding 'Dr Dolittles' sought for writing competition

News Story 1
 Vets are being invited to enter a writing competition run by the Page Turner Awards for a chance to get their story published or even made into a film.

Dubbed the 'Rolls Royce' of writing awards, the Page Turner competition provides an opportunity for aspiring writers to submit unpublished fiction and non-fiction work to be read by a panel of influential players in the publishing industry.

A spokesperson said: 'Do you think of yourself as a magical healer, like Dr Dolittle. Or maybe you have a story to share about the times when, sadly, animals can't be treated, and pet owners reflect on those moments they took for granted."

Avian influenza confirmed in Lancashire

A case of highly pathogenic (HPAI H5N8) avian influenza has been confirmed in two captive peregrine falcons on a non-commercial, non-poultry premises near Skelmersdale, West Lancashire.

Following a risk assessment, APHA has declared that no disease control zones have been put in place surrounding this non-commercial, non-poultry premises.

Eighteen cases of HPAI H5N8 have now been identified in poultry and other captive birds in England. A housing order for poultry and captive birds introduced by Defra to control the spread of the disease expired on 31 March, although bird keepers in England are still required by law to comply with biosecurity measures.
