Vets have the opportunity to roll up their sleeves and get hands on with endoscopy techniques at BEVA Congress 2016.

A variety of commonly used equine endoscopy procedures will be covered during the sessions.

The organisers have invited veterinary experts to share their knowledge and expertise in gastroscopy, sinoscopy and upper respiratory tract (URT) endoscopy, using cadaver heads and state of the art models during daily practical sessions at this year’s event.

Guiding delegates

The practical sessions will guide delegates through the most commonly used equine endoscopy procedures, including:

  • how to perform gastroscopy
  • how to perform URT endoscopy
  • exploration of the guttural pouches
  • how to get the most out of sinoscopy

According to BEVA, the gastroscopy practical will make use of a custom synthetic model of a horse’s oesophagus and stomach, uniquely developed by BEVA, Burtons and DeLegge Medical Design in the US.

BEVA president Mark Bowen said: “BEVA is committed to providing innovative and practical CPD through its entire CPD programme – including congress – and these practical sessions showcase the excellent and varied education provided to members.”

Leading learning

Mr Bowen continued: “At a time when the RCVS is considering the value of certain types of CPD in improving professional competence, BEVA is committed to leading the field and challenging perceptions of what a modern conference can be.”

The practical sessions will run on all three days of congress, on the balcony above the exhibition hall. Each session will comprise a demonstration, then three practical slots – each for a maximum of 10 delegates. Places can be secured on a first come, first served basis by signing up on the day.

BEVA Congress is being held on 7-10 September at the ICC in Birmingham. For more information, visit www.beva.org.uk
