Small Animal Oncology Refresher
Cancer is commonly diagnosed in pets in general practice. Thanks to tremendous advances in the treatment of small animal cancer you can help pets to continue to spend more good quality time with their families despite their diagnosis of a potentially life shortening disease. This course will cover the general principles of cancer diagnosis, clinical staging and treatment to maximise outcome in your cancer patients and help meeting owners’ expectations. The course will then cover five of the most common canine and feline cancer types with a practical approach to their diagnosis and treatment.
The course will be divided into the following modules:
Module 1: Cancer diagnosis, clinical staging and prognosis
Module 2: Principles of anti-cancer treatment
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 most relevant practical aspects of that topic accompanied by handouts to take away as a bench guide in your practice. You will also find a tasks and clinical quizzes 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.
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.
