Successful candidates will present their case at Congress 2020
Aspiring veterinary nurse speakers are being encouraged to submit their interesting or novel cases for a new nursing case report development session at BSAVA Congress 2020.
Devised by BSAVA’s programme committee, the Case Reports session has been devised to support RVNs who wish to develop their presenting ability. It is specifically aimed at those with little or no experience of presenting and includes mentorship support for the selected candidates.
“Case reports represent an engaging and interactive method for nurses to discuss unique cases or new techniques,” explained RVN Claire Woolford, who sits on the BSAVA Congress Programme Committee. “What’s particularly special about the initiative at Congress 2020, is that we want to use the case report platform to support aspiring veterinary nurse speakers who could become speakers at Congress or other BSAVA events”.
She continued: “We are particularly encouraging nurses with limited experience of presenting and offering the positive environment of Congress for them to develop their skills. All successful candidates will be assigned an experienced mentor who will aid them in preparing the final report to present at Congress’’.
The eight winning applicants will be chosen by the BSAVA Congress report and will have 15 minutes to present their case at Congress 2020. The winners will also receive a Congress nurse pass for the whole event (BSAVA VN members) or for Saturday (4 April) (non-members).
Veterinary nurses wishing to be involved in the initiative are urged to submit a brief synopsis of their case by 4th November 2019. The Case Report must focus on small animal cases, but any species and discipline can be discussed.
