New CPD partnership to share latest evidence-based knowledge with vet nurses – VetNurse News – Vet Nurse

Improve International has announced a partnership with the University of Cambridge to share its specialists’ evidence-based knowledge with veterinary nurses.

The new Improve Veterinary Academy Series is comprised of five month-long semesters, each of which will focus on a different clinical topic.

Each semester will consist of videoed lectures, discussion forums, journal clubs, as well as the ability to access the university’s latest evidence-based research in these areas.

The clinical topics to be explored are:

  • Brachycephalic Obstructive Airway Syndrome (BOAS)
  • Canine and Feline Oncology
  • Canine and Feline Cardiology
  • Canine and Feline Neurology
  • Equine Oncology

Each semester counts towards your annual CPD requirement.

Professor James Wood, Head of the Department of Veterinary Medicine at Cambridge University, said: “This new partnership will allow veterinary nurses to get the latest evidence-based knowledge directly from our top specialists.

“They will also learn to apply valuable skills in their daily practice life and engage with others on Improve International’s global, interactive online platform.

Charlotte French, Head of Curriculum & Quality at Improve International, said: “We are thrilled to be working with the University of Cambridge Department of Veterinary Medicine as another innovative way to help the veterinary community take their careers to the next level.”

Professor Mike Herrtage, Trustee of the University of Cambridge Veterinary School Trust and former Dean of the Cambridge Veterinary School, said: “The new joint agreement brings together Improve International, with its outstanding record of high-quality and innovative CPD provision and the staff of the Department of Veterinary Medicine with their excellent specialist clinical knowledge and experience, as well as their recognized quality in small group teaching to stage the Improve International Academy Series.

“This will provide a new milestone in CPD course delivery.”
