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.

CVS Group hit by cyber attack

CVS Group, which owns more than 450 veterinary practices in the UK, has been hit by a cyber attack.

In a statement, the group said the incident involved unauthorised external access to a limited number of its IT systems. As soon as the attack was discovered, the group took its IT systems temporarily offline, causing 'considerable operational disruption'.

It has warned that the security steps taken and ongoing plans to move its operational systems and IT infrastructure to the Cloud are likely to have an ongoing impact over a number of weeks.

Due to the risk that personal information was accessed, CVS has informed the Information Commissioner's Office. The company is working with third party consultants to investigate the incident.
