Designed for vets and nurses, a brand new, online distance-learningcourse in fluid therapy has been launched by Dechra Veterinary Products.

The new site is designed to help maximise the potential of its Vetivex fluids range.

Dechra fluid therapy CPD site For those passionate about extending their knowledge and improving the care of their patients, the Fluids Knowledge Programme has been designed to provide comprehensive and flexible online CPD for companion animal and equine practitioners. The coursework, which counts for six to eight hours of CPD learning, includes the latest thinking from fluid therapy specialists Dr Ava Firth, Karen Humm and Kevin Corley.

Combining theoretical and practical advice on fluid therapy for both small animals and horses, the course offers comprehensive training, acts as a refresher and develops thinking on fluid therapy. Users will also benefit from self-assessment questions, so progress can be monitored throughout.

Gwenda Bason, marketing director for Dechra Veterinary Products, said: “We’ve spent months of research and development producing this online learning portal for professionals. It will enable vets and nurses to improve their knowledge, understanding and patient care. Being online, users can dip in and out of it as and when their schedules allow and additional costs often associated with CPD learning such as travel or accommodation costs, are eliminated.

“When practices choose Vetivex, they’re not just buying bags of fluid, they’re benefitting from our investment in practice education which will improve their understanding of the role and management of fluids.”

Vetivex users have immediate access to a programme that is worth around £400 per person. So for example, a practice with eight members could update their knowledge, from the premises, when it suits them – and save the business over £3,000 in CPD costs!
