Following the success of its first dedicated vet nurse webinar earlier in 2012, Royal Canin has announced a second VN online training session, on the topic of nutritional management for critical care patients.
Following the success of its first dedicated vet nurse webinar earlier in 2012, Royal Canin has announced a second VN online training session is to take place at 8.00pm on November 27.
Tackling the topic of nutritional management for critical care patients, the webinar follows Royal Canin’s popular ‘Puppy Parties’ webinar in May, which attracted 1,300 registrations from interested nurses.
The one hour ‘Handle with Care’ webinar will explore the importance of good nutrition when nursing a critical cat or dog.
The session will see Edinburgh University’s cancer and wellness nurse Katy Calder and Royal Canin’s external nutritional advisor Sarah Collins discuss the considerations you will need to keep in mind when presented with a seriously ill patient – when voluntary intakes are unreliable and injury or illness impede normal digestion.
Sarah explained: “Providing a diet which delivers vital energy is just the start, many practical considerations need to be made and nutritional concepts need to be put into practice. Only then are we able to significantly improve recovery times.
“So what we aim to do in this webinar is explore the nursing knowledge and skills we should all employ whenever faced with a critical care case.”
- Valued at £40, but provided as a free offering from Royal Canin, interested nurses can register for the webinar at www.royalcanin.co.uk/criticalcarewebinar.
- CPD certificates will be made available online to participants after the event.
