Places are filling up fast for a week-long event that once againpromises to combine the best in veterinary CPD with good times on theslopes.
SPVS’ Snowscene has been held by SPVS and Fort Dodge for more than 20 years, and this year takes place in the French Alps from March 13 to 20.
The event will be returning to the Hotel De St Martin in the village of St Martin de Belleville in the French Haut Savoie. Previous delegates will know the many splendid runs down to the village, as well as the tougher skiing offered within the Trois Vallees ski area.
This year’s CPD is provided by Liz Leece, head of the anaesthesia team at the Animal Health Trust, who will present on advances in treating trauma patients as well as on analgesia and pain management. She has published several research papers and contributed to books, and is currently an examiner for both the RCVS certificate in Veterinary Anaesthesia and the European Diploma in Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia.
The non-clinical CPD comes courtesy of Caroline Johnson, who will give advice to help you lead and motivate your staff, communicate more effectively and effect positive change. There will also be a useful presentation on the Fort Dodge Indices.
Organiser and SPVS president Iain Richards said: “I look forward to welcoming new delegates, as well as old stagers, on one the highpoints of the SPVS year. I anticipate the CPD to be as challenging and exciting as the skiing.”
As a slight departure from usual, transport can be organised on Eurostar. This has the big advantage of allowing almost two additional days skiing for the holiday and creates a great party atmosphere at the start of the week.
Places are limited to 60 and would-be delegates have been urged to book soon because of Snowscene’s popularity. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01926 410 454 for more information and to book.
