Bringing together experts from the USA, Italy and the U.K., we explore protocols around long-term, holistic management of osteoarthritis within both referral and first opinion settings.

The current context has forced the adoption of new ways of practicing veterinary medicine with little opportunity to train, prepare or establish best practices. In this webinar we will explore the why, the what and, importantly, the how of veterinary telemedicine. We will discuss the appropriate extent of digitalisation in the veterinary context, the essentials and the nice-to-haves in the veterinary tele-toolkit, and work through specific veterinary telemedicine case studies. All of this will be informed by key insights and best practices from the thousands of veterinary virtual care interactions that have taken place on the PetsApp platform.
Due to current circumstances - pet owners are spending more time with their pets, increasing the likelihood that they will spot the subtle signs of osteoarthritis. Yet in adherence to recent RCVS guidelines to reduce in-clinic footfall, non-urgent checks are inhibited in current circumstances. As vets continue to serve as their clients’ trusted advisors when it comes to pet mobility, Duncan & John will explore how best to stage arthritis in teleconsultations. This session will consider appropriate treatment options that are in the best interests of both the pet and the veterinary practice.
Working outside of your values can lead to a lot of unhappiness, stress and even burnout. Similarly, employing someone to work in a role that poorly aligns with their personal values is unlikely to result in peak performance or optimal outcomes. But how many of us have really sat down and worked out our values? Did you know your values can change significantly over time?
Speaker Bio: Ella Snowball, CEO of Recruit4vets and NLP Master Practitioner, will help you discover what matters most to you and, perhaps just as importantly, help you elicit the values of others.
