Submissions open for BSAVA 2024 case reports
“It’s very inspiring to see members of the nursing profession presenting their case and feel the passion from the nursing speaker” – Kelly Eyre.
Vet nurses asked to submit ‘unique’ cases.

The British Small Animal Veterinary Association (BSAVA) is inviting veterinary nurses to apply to present ‘unique and interesting’ case reports at BSAVA Congress 2024.

Successful candidates will be given eight minutes to present their case report to delegates at the event in Manchester on 21-23 March 2024. Each presentation will be followed by two to three minutes of questions from the audience.

The presentations will be judged based on criteria including the unique aspects of the case and the response to questions. An award will be given to the veterinary nurse who presents the best case report.

The case reports can cover any area of small animal nursing, from critical care to nurse clinics.

Kelly Eyre RVN, BSAVA Congress committee member, said: “The VN Case Reports are a great opportunity for aspiring nurses who would like to become speakers at BSAVA or other events and discuss an interesting case from their career. This will be the third year we have had VN Case Reports, and the standard of applications over the last two years has been very high.

“I’m really looking forward to the presentations and I encourage as many people as possible to attend the sessions. It’s very inspiring to see members of the nursing profession presenting their case and feel the passion from the nursing speaker.”

Submissions close on 15 January 2014. Details about how to submit a case report can be found on the BSAVA Congress website.

RCVS course explains concerns process

A free, online course from the RCVS Academy has been launched, designed to clarify RCVS' concerns procedure.

The content will give veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses a better understanding of the process, and what they can expect if a concern is raised about them. It includes details of common concerns.

The interactive resource has been developed in collaboration with Clare Stringfellow, case manager in the RCVS Professional Conduct Team.

Ms Stringfellow said: "We appreciate that concerns can be very worrying, and we hope that, through this course, we can give vets and nurses a better understanding of the process and how to obtain additional support."

The course can be accessed via the RCVS Academy. Users are encouraged to record their learning for CPD.
