Pain Management TimeOnline

Pain Management TimeOnline
The negative physiological effects of poorly controlled pain are well documented and as veterinarians we recognise the importance of using effective pain relief strategies both with respect to disease management, patient care and well-being. 


This course is ideally suited for vets who want to brush up on their knowledge of analgesics and be updated on the latest techniques available for managing acute and chronic pain in small animals.
This course aims to develop and your knowledge and clinical decision making by providing an update and review of drug efficacy and administration techniques, as well as taking an evidence-based approach to the use of “off-label” opioids. The course will allow you to develop your understanding of the factors taken into consideration in the choice between local and general anaesthesia as well as the beneficial use of analgesic infusions.
