The equine congress hosts a vet nursing day each year, with themed lectures aimed specifically at the profession and presented by a combination of vets and vet nurses.

A VN lecture at BEVA Congress 2009BEVA Congress will run from September 8-11 at the International Convention Centre in Birmingham. This year’s VN day will take place on Thursday, September 9, and will encompass a broad programme, including:

  • Ethics in Nursing.
  • Coping with sick horses 
  • Bereavement management
  • Complementary Therapeutics and Rehabilitation,
  • Medical Nursing,
  • Nutrition and Supportive Care.

The full day counts as 7 hours of vet nursing CPD.

Pete Ravenhill, partner at Willesley Equine Clinic at Tetbury, Gloucestershire, who will be speaking at congress this year, is always keen for as many of his practice’s VNs as possible to attend.
 
He said: “We tend to send three or four of our vet nurses each year, as a part of their annual CPD budget. In our experience they come back informed and enthusiastic, having received masses of information and ways to apply it in their own day-to-day jobs. It also enables our vet nurses to realise how much we value them as professionals and how heavily reliant the quality of our service is on their skills and professionalism.”
