BSAVA launches nursing case report opportunity
“Case reports represent an engaging and interactive method for nurses to discuss unique cases or new techniques" - Claire Woolford.

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.

Full details are available at www.bsavaevents.com

SPANA film highlights plight of working animals overseas

Animal welfare charity SPANA (The Society for the Protection of Animals Abroad) has teamed up with Brian Blessed and other famous voices to highlight the plight of working animals overseas.

In a new animated film, the celebrities raise awareness by showing the solidarity of the UK's own working animals on strike. A sniffer dog (Brian Blessed), police horse (Peter Egan) and sheepdog (Deborah Meaden) are shown ignoring their duties and protesting in solidarity with animals in developing countries.

SPANA chef executive Geoffrey Dennis said: "We are so grateful to Deborah, Peter and Brian for lending their voices to our new film, and for speaking up for millions of working animals overseas. SPANA believes that a life of work should not mean a life of suffering, and it is only thanks to people’s generosity and support that we can continue our vital work improving the lives of these animals."
