A project run by the Small Animal Surveillance Network (SAVSNET) is seeking vets to participate in a research study.
Funded by Dogs Trust, the aim of the project is to develop response protocols to detect and control canine infectious diseases early. This will include diseases which are transmissible to humans.
SAVSNET is searching for veterinary surgeons from all backgrounds and experience levels to take part in a workshop, which will discuss where to set thresholds for outbreak notification to vets.
Also discussed will be the level of uncertainty participants would accept when dealing with a potential outbreak notification, and what kind of resources and information would be necessary for veterinary professionals from a response system.
The company is looking for veterinary surgeons to participate from both small and large practices, and from independent practices alongside those which are part of a larger group.
Participants are being asked to attend an online workshop of one and a half hours, date dependent on availability.
Anyone interested in taking part should contact Dr Carmen Tamayo at email@example.com
