The new editions of the RCVS Guide to Professional Conduct and Guide to Professional Conduct for Veterinary Nurses have been posted out to all home-practising veterinary surgeons and registered veterinary nurses.

RCVS Guide to Professional ConductThese new editions have been fully updated, and incorporate all amendments issued since the last full reprint in 2008. Any changes made between editions have been posted out to veterinary surgeons and registered veterinary nurses, and published on RCVSonline.

RCVS president Sandy Trees said: “I urge veterinary surgeons and nurses to read through this latest edition in full. It cannot be emphasised enough how important it is to be familiar with the college’s latest guidance.”

Professor Trees also looked to remind vets and VNs that the RCVS also publishes a comprehensive series of Advice Notes to amplify RCVS guidance on a range of specific and topical issues.

The 2010 Continuing Professional Development Record Cards have also been sent to all practising vets and registered veterinary nurses. Veterinary surgeons are required to carry out at least 105 hours of CPD, and registered veterinary nurses at least 45 hours, across any three-year period. Guidance on completing and recording CPD is included on the Record Cards.

If you do not receive either mailing in reasonable time, then please contact the college. The CPD Record Cards can also be downloaded from RCVSonline.
