7 Mansfield Street
This course is designed to give you a solid foundation in enhancing nutritional support of hospitalised small animals. From nutritional assessment, planning, to placing feeding tubes, we will work through clinically relevant cases enabling you to effectively address the nutritional needs of your patients.
The course will familiarise you with various techniques, and you will have the chance to observe and perform some of the techniques discussed on models. We will look at customising nutritional plans to accommodate a variety of patients and co-morbidities. We will also cover the appropriate use of appetite stimulants, and when and how to use parenteral nutrition.
The course will use interactive informal discussions, case studies, and practical demonstrations and worksheets.
