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.

"Its excellence in teaching and research has resulted in greater understanding and some real-world changes benefiting the health and welfare of both animals and humans, which is testament to the school's remarkable staff, students and graduates."

RCVS HQ to temporarily relocate

The headquarters of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) is to move temporarily, ahead of its permanent relocation later in the year.

From Monday, 26 February 2024, RCVS' temporary headquarters will be at 2 Waterhouse Square, Holborn, London. This is within walking distance of its current rented offices at The Cursitor, Chancery Lane.

RCVS have been based at The Cursitor since February 2022, following the sale of its Westminster premises the previous March.

However, unforeseen circumstances relating to workspace rental company WeWork filing for bankruptcy means The Cursitor will no longer operate as a WeWork space. The new temporary location is still owned by WeWork.

RCVS anticipates that it will move into its permanent location at Hardwick Street, Clerkenwell, later on in the year.
