Vi Orthopaedic Symposium 2022 – “Everything Thoracic Limb”

Vi Orthopaedic Symposium 2022 - “Everything Thoracic Limb” 1 • Provet Vi NZ

Presented by Provet Veterinary Instrumentation and Crampton Consulting Group

1st – 2nd April 2022, Mantra Legends, Gold Coast QLD, Australia

Veterinary Instrumentation’s inaugural Orthopaedic Symposium has been designed to grow both Veterinary and Nursing knowledge within your practice in order to “Do more and treat better.”

The Symposium will be split into two streams to support your practice’s Orthopaedic knowledge, encompassing both Veterinary and Nursing streams.

The Veterinary Stream will incorporate five of Australia’s leading Orthopaedic Specialists and CPD presenters. It will explore in-depth the cervical spine, shoulder, elbow and carpus using both presentation and small group, case-based and scientifically supported discussions. The aim is to target the most common thoracic limb lameness cases seen in Australian small animal practice, providing clinicians with improved practical knowledge surrounding lameness evaluation, investigation modalities and treatment options.

The Nursing Stream will target all aspects of specialised Orthopaedic Veterinary Nursing, aiming to ensure clinic Orthopaedic patients are treated to gold standard care. Topics include anatomy and physiology, pre-anaesthesia checks, anaesthesia and pain relief for Orthopaedic patients, hospital care, physiotherapy, post-operative care and nutritional management.

Incorporating presentations from Orthopaedic Veterinary Specialists, leading Nursing and Surgical Nursing presenters, the Nursing stream will culminate with presentations on managing stress and resilience as a part of your own self-care.
