BVNA CPD webinar series

Between July and September, we’ll be releasing two recorded sessions from BVNA Congress 2021 every week – this adds up to over 25 hours of CPD!

Free access to the entire series will be available exclusively to BVNA members – but, if you’re not currently a member and would like a taster of what’s to come, the first webinar is available to all completely free of charge.

If you’d like to access the rest of the series, you could save over £300 by joining us as a BVNA member.

Here’s just a handful of the topics you can expect to see coming up in the series:

  • The impact of veterinary care throughout the world – Caroline Allenden RVN
  • Nutritional and nursing needs for the hospitalised donkey – Dominique Doyle RVN
  • How to be an antimicrobial steward in your practice – Dr Tim Nuttall BSc BVSc PhD CertVD CBiol MSB MRCVS

… and many more!

We’ll be kicking off this new series with Nicola Lakeman PGDip RVN CertSAN CertVN ECC VTS(Nutrition), who is also our keynote speaker for this year’s BVNA Congress 2022!

Nicola’s session from last year’s BVNA Congress is on ‘Economic sustainability of delivering nurse weight clinics’. Here, she discusses the valuable role of the RVN in providing recommendations to clients on the health and welfare of their pet, and empowering RVNs to feel able to charge clients for their time and expertise.

You can access the recording for this session here.
