Oncology 101 for General Practitioners
Cancer is arguably the leading cause of disease-related death in dogs and cats. If you graduated when veterinary oncology was skipped at university, or if you just need a refresher, this course can help you. We’ll start at the beginning and discuss the practical aspects of managing dogs and cats with common types of cancer.
The course will be divided into modules that we will release sequentially.
Module 1: Approach to the cancer patient and treatment principles
Module 2: Chemotherapy in general practice
Module 3: Canine lymphoma
Module 4: Feline lymphoma
Module 5: Canine mast cell tumours
Module 6: Canine splenic hemangiosarcoma
Module 7: Canine anal sac adenocarcinoma
For each module you will find a webinar that covers the major points and accompanying notes that delve into each topic in greater detail. You will also find a task or case for you to complete. Overall, we’ll focus on what is common so that you can make best use of your time.
Please also join me on the discussion forum. It’s an opportunity to ask any questions you have about oncology and to deepen your knowledge after completing each module. Please remember – no question is too easy – don’t be shy!
Vet CPD Online Tutored Courses take approximately 8 hours to complete and can be completed at your own pace and at any time over the course’s 3-week period. There are downloadable course notes and clinical cases to work through, plus – what makes our courses unique – a busy clinical forum where questions and answers are posted and where delegates have access to the instructor for the duration of the course. This always generates some lively discussions and the idea that no one should leave a course with any unanswered questions.
At the end of the course there is a final exam plus a Certificate of Completion for your CPD records.
