Edinburgh will play host to the conference.

The biennial network conference on evidence-based veterinary medicine (EBVM) from RCVS Knowledge will be held at the Assembly Rooms in George Street, with organisers expecting about 250 international delegates, speakers and sponsors.

‘Huge pool’

Interim executive director of RCVS Knowledge Corrie McCann said: “We are thrilled to be hosting our 2016 EBVM network conference in Edinburgh.

“RCVS Knowledge had a great response to the first and second call for abstracts, which has resulted in a huge pool of EBVM-related topics for the plenary, parallel and poster sessions.

“The programme has now been released and offers an inspiring mix of sessions for those with an interest in EBVM.”

Speakers, streams and social activitiesRCVS Knowledge logo

Confirmed speakers have a substantial background in EBVM and include people from:

  • the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence
  • the RVC
  • GD Animal Health
  • international universities
  • veterinary clinics

The programme offers several streams to tailor the event to all delegates, ranging from teaching and implementing EBVM to business, clinical research and veterinary nursing.

The conference also offers a range of social activities alongside the programme, including the first RCVS Knowledge “Sceptical Vets”, set in a traditional Scottish pub, and the inaugural black tie Evidence Awards – including a three course meal and a live ceilidh.

Full programme details can be found on the conference’s website and tickets are on sale now.
