About this course
Advances in veterinary medicine mean that pets are living longer, with
many “diseases of old age”, such as cancer, being managed long-term.
Management of pain in these patients is essential to maintain optimum
quality of life. To achieve this, pain must be recognised and treated
appropriately, through constant re-evaluation, tailoring analgesia to
address patients’ changing needs. As in many areas of cancer treatment,
both veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses have essential roles to
play in comfort management.
This module aims to overview the options available – from
pharmacological strategies, to nursing care, both in the hospital
environment and at home, in conjunction with owners, whilst encouraging
delegates to consider analgesia and its management in the cancer-bearing
patients they care for.
