This year’s London Vet Show is set to receive a “shake-up” thanks to IVC Evidensia, which said it plans to have a series of topics, relevant to first opinion vets and nurses, with specialists from different disciplines for both small animal Referrals and Equine referrals lectures.
It said the “unique” approach will showcase the expertise IVC Evidensia has within the group and highlight how specialist patient care is based around “collaboration and teamwork” between first opinion clinicians and referral specialists.
Each specialist will speak for a half hour slot about the topic from their point of view, in a move that will reportedly give delegates the chance to “meet and hear from experts in their fields, talking on a range of subjects relevant to their day-to-day work, in really practical, focused talks”.
IVC Evidensia said every lecture has been designed to be “concise and to-the-point”, with the opportunity for delegates to ask questions at the end.
Richard Artingstall (MBA, MA, Vet MB, CertSAS, MRCVS, RCVS Advanced Practitioner in Small Animal Surgery), of Vale Referrals and the IVC Evidensia Referrals Strategy Group, said: “Working our Referrals and Equine streams like this gives delegates the opportunity to gain a real insight, from different disciplines, into how our specialists work up a case.
“The lectures will offer practical, discipline-based guidance, looking at clinical presentations and problems from different discipline perspectives. Our hope is that this will help delegates in decision making and planning case management plans for these more tricky case presentations in practice. I think it will be incredibly useful for them and I can’t wait to be there.”
