British Association of Homeopathic Veterinary Surgeons hopes its open day will help profession find out more about homeopathy, its evidence base, where to train for it and how to introduce it into practice.
Believers and sceptics in veterinary homeopathy alike have been invited to the Homeopathy Works open day organised by the British Association of Homeopathic Veterinary Surgeons (BAHVS).
BAHVS said the open day – held on June 22, 2013 at the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust in Arundel, West Sussex – aims to help members of the veterinary profession find out more about homeopathy, its evidence base, where to train for it and how to introduce it into practice.
According to the association, views within the profession on the subject “often seem polarised“.
“However, so often it seems much of the ‘anti’-sentiment is based simply on the assertions of others and few have studied the subject in any depth,” it said. “Those that do study and use homeopathy see the benefit to their patients and the growing support from an increasingly well-informed animal-owning public.”
BAHVS said it has also invited the presidents of the major associations and that Jacqui Molyneux, president of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS), will be attending.
The open day – which carries CPD points and is held during BAHVS’ annual conference – is free of charge for RCVS-registered members and there are 90 places.
To book your place, email the BAHVS secretary with your name, telephone number and RCVS number.
