Devote a day to Oncology!
Sandra Nguyen and Penny Thomas from the Small Animal Specialist Hospital (SASH) in Sydney are co-presenting this exciting and intensive 1-day seminar. A quick read of their bios—outlining their impressive cumulative experience in academia, cancer research and as practising veterinarians—demonstrates why you should book your place now.
Sandra was heavily involved at The Ohio State University with clinical trials involving innovative new treatments for pets with cancer. She is particularly interested in how veterinary communication with pet owners impacts their grief. With many pet owners experiencing grief equal to that felt with the loss of a close human companion, empathy and awareness of your impact on this is important.
Sandra and Penny will cover new modalities in oncology, through to palliative care and metastatic disease. By participating in this seminar, not only will you update your veterinary oncology knowledge and hone your practical skills, you will also learn better ways to communicate with your clients in general as well as how to deliver unwelcome news.
By the end of the seminar you will be able to:
- Demonstrate knowledge in recent advances in oncology
- Apply multi-modal pain relief principles to your cancer patients
- Be able to identify when special staining or extra testing is required on Pathology samples
- Know the treatment options for metastatic disease
- Make the euthanasia experience less stressful for the vet healthcare team and client
