Essentials of ECC
Royal Veterinary College, Boltons Park Farm, Hawkshead Road
As emergency and critical care becomes more advanced, new techniques are being introduced into practice. The veterinary nurse is key to the treatment of critically ill patients. The survival of such patients depends on the effective collaboration between veterinary surgeon & nurse.
It is vital that VNs are familiar with the kit and nursing care involved in the management of emergency cases – effective nursing is a vital component in any successfully managed ECC case.
This is an in-depth ECC training session. Start on your first steps of being an ECC nurse, and get solid, practical information that you can use in your practice. Be a valued member of your team by becoming an invaluable member of your team.
