Who is it for?
Start Date
August 8, 2019


Veterinary nursing requires more than simply checking off boxes on treatment sheets, it involves thinking through the reasons for and the expectations from each treatment performed. This webinar will cover not only the importance of learning to think critically with every patient interaction, but uses case studies to allow the audience to practice these skills and see how they can help in real-life situations. From basic to advanced, the audience will work through cases highlighting different disease processes and be asked “what would you do” questions to help them become more proactive members of the medical decision-making team.
