Askham Bryan College to hold its 4th annual Veterinary Nursing Congress1st February 2022
Askham Bryan College Veterinary Nursing department will hold its virtual conference on Monday 21 March 2022, 9am-5pm. The event will feature ten speakers who will present a range of current developments and research in Veterinary Nursing. Professionals and students from the industry are invited to attend.
Event speaker John Redbond says, “The role of the Veterinary Nurse has evolved and grown so much since I qualified 18 years ago and it continues to at an ever-growing rate, with the pandemic only increasing the opportunities for nurses to develop their contribution to practice”. John’s session, The Veterinary Nurse’s role in the management of allergy, will focus on dermatology which he feels is a huge area within practice as nearly a third of the cases coming through the door are doing so because there is an issue with their skin.
He says, “I am delighted to be speaking again at this fantastic event to raise the awareness of current issues in the industry and the Veterinary Nurses’ role in this field.”
Sarah Reynolds-Golding, Head of the Veterinary Nursing Department at Askham Bryan College says, “After the success of last year’s virtual conference, we are delighted to once again welcome our guests and speakers to our Veterinary Nursing Congress in an online format. The platform enabled us to accommodate more attendees and despite the challenges the year has thrown at us, it served as a great forum for our peers and fellow colleagues to constructively share their latest research and developments.”
Attendees of the live event will be able to access recordings of the full programme after the event.
