Researchers at the Centre for Evidence-based Veterinary Medicine (CEVM) are hitting the road to take training out to the veterinary profession.

The tours start in September and take in a variety of towns and cities including Cardiff.

Evidence-based veterinary medicine (EVM) is the use of a combination of the best available scientific evidence, veterinary clinical expertise and specific animal and owner circumstances to facilitate good clinical decision-making in veterinary practice.

Representatives from CEVM at the University of Nottingham School of Veterinary Medicine and Science are holding a number of evening EVM training events across the UK.

The events are aimed at all members of the profession, from vets and veterinary nurses, to students and practice managers, and will provide practical tips on how to incorporate EVM into practice.

CEVM director Rachel Dean said: “It can be difficult for people working in busy clinics to get the time to travel – sometimes long distances – for continuing professional development (CPD) opportunities.

“As one of the aims of the centre is to provide EVM opportunities and resources to support the profession, we thought we would get on the road and deliver cost-effective CPD on the doorsteps of the profession.”

Eleven training events are scheduled to take place across Scotland, Northern Ireland, England and Wales.

The two-hour events will include training on why EVM is important to the veterinary profession and how individuals can get more involved in using an EVM approach to improve the health and welfare of the animals under their care. Refreshments are included and a discount is offered for students.
