Vets and VNs can acquire a free ticket to hear master practitioner SueDyson deliver the prestigious biennial RCVS Share Joneslecture on the subject “Looking and seeing: the art of equine lameness diagnosis”.
In the lecture she will use case examples to illustrate the fundamental importance of a sound knowledge of anatomy both clinically, when using observation and palpation for diagnosis, and in underpinning the logical interpretation of various imaging modalities. Afterwards there will be opportunity to ask questions.
“With the increasing use of technology and diagnostic imaging techniques there is a risk that we lose sight of clinical evaluation,” says Dr Dyson, who stresses that diagnosing equine lameness is both “an art and a science”.
Dr Dyson was awarded her RCVS fellowship for work on shoulder lameness in the horse and RCVS Council member Dr Barry Johnson, who nominated Dr Dyson for the lectureship, claims she is “one of the outstanding diagnosticians of the era, with an immense knowledge of anatomy”. He describes watching her work as “a revelation – she really does take lameness diagnosis to another level”.
The RCVS Share Jones Lecture will take place on November 24 at 6pm in the lecture theatre in the School of Veterinary Medicine and Science at the Sutton Bonington Campus of the University of Nottingham. It is open to all vets, veterinary nurses and veterinary students, and refreshments will be provided beforehand.
Although tickets are free, numbers are limited, so to secure your place, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 020 7202 2773 or book online at www.rcvs.org.uk/events. Parking is available at the campus and the nearest rail station is East Midlands Parkway.
The RCVS Share Jones Lectureship is bestowed biennially upon a lecturer of special eminence in veterinary anatomy. John Share Jones, in whose name the lectureship was established, was instrumental in developing the teaching of anatomy at the Liverpool School of Veterinary Medicine since its foundation in 1904.
