ULTRASOUND PLUS 2023 Cohort

Approved for 20 CVE points by the Veterinary Council of Ireland for 2023 

This novel mode of study aims to deliver a year of small animal abdominal ultrasound CPD for the GP clinician wishing to upskill in this often underutilized imaging modality. It will run from July 2023 through to June 2024, thus covering 2 years of CPD allowance (40 CVE points). The course is composed of monthly online lectures with informal case discussions and includes 3 full days of hands-on practical sessions delivered in small groups.

This multimodal course aims to delve, in detail, into the ultrasonographic features of each organ system, the presentation of common pathologies, and the innate merits and pitfalls of ultrasound in yielding a diagnosis. We will, in addition, study this imaging modality in the context of the emergency critical care setting, addressing its importance in the serial monitoring of patients and becoming competent in performing AFAST® and TFAST® scans. The practical aspects of this course will focus on how to confidently accomplish a comprehensive systematic abdominal ultrasound, a basic thoracic ultrasound (excluding the heart), and techniques for performing ultrasound-guided fine needle aspirations.

Ultrasound so wonderfully bridges the gap between medicine and surgery and is a fundamental instrument in any diagnostic tool kit. We feel this course will be an invaluable asset to the GP clinician at any stage of their career.

Radiology for Veterinary Nurses

Approved for 8 CVE Credits by VCI

This highly interactive and case-based course aims to provide further training to Veterinary Nurses who have an interest in radiography. The merit of a good quality radiograph cannot be emphasized enough! Interpretation and subsequent differential diagnoses are contingent upon adequate exposure settings and great positioning. Tricks of the trade that are easy to learn and implement, but are so often overlooked in the busy GP clinical setting, are simple yet highly effective. This course will provide lectures, case-based scenarios, quizzes and practical sessions and encourage collaborative radiograph critique. We look forward to you joining us!
