Tickets have gone on sale for the first International Evidence-Based Veterinary Medicine (EBVM) Network Conference.
A two-day event, which aims to provide veterinary professionals with the latest scientific research and training to help them put EBVM into practice across the globe, the conference takes place on October 23 and 24 at the Beaumont Estate in Windsor.
It will be the first international conference fully focused on EBVM and has been organised by RCVS Knowledge, which hopes to become a global intermediary for evidence-based veterinary knowledge by providing access to information that is of immediate value to practising veterinary professionals and directly contributes to evidence-based clinical decision-making.
The conference is open to all who are interested in the practice and science of EBVM, including veterinary surgeons, veterinary nurses, students, technicians, information specialists and those who support their activity.
Scientific panel member Brennan McKenzie, a small animal vet from Adobe Animal Hospital in California, and president of the Evidence-Based Veterinary Medicine Association, said: “The conference will bring together experts in basic research, epidemiology, EBVM, and clinical medicine.
“It will identify the most critical information needs of veterinary practitioners as well as marshal talent and resources towards generating this vital information. Furthermore, it will focus on raising awareness of the relevance of EBVM to practitioners and finding ways to more effectively teach EBVM principles and techniques to students and veterinary professionals in practice.”
Ticket prices start at £575 and include two days of CPD, accommodation, all meals, an evening reception and several networking events. Bursaries of £500 towards the cost of attending the conference are available for EBVM network members who are students, veterinary nurses, or based in low- or lower-middle-income economies, as defined by the World Bank.
