ONLINE LECTURE SERIES CONTENT

This well-structured and very practically oriented online lecture series has been assembled by 7 of the world’s top Equine Anaesthesiologists and covers general anaesthesia in private practice from A to Z.  It aims to provide interns, new graduate vets and nurses/technicians with the knowledge and case-based foundations to competently manage the whole spectrum of general anaesthesia cases at private equine clinics/hospitals worldwide.  

This highly interactive online lecture series began on Thursday 12th May 2022 and consisted of 18 weekly live-streamed Modules, totalling 32 hours.  Each Module is made available on-demand for vets/nurses/techs and AVA-Accreditation (Association of Veterinary Anaesthetists) has been granted.

An international panel consisting of the following 7 world-renowned Equine Anaesthesiologists will be involved as Speakers/Discussants:  Drs. David Bardell (Univ. of Liverpool, UK), Alison Bennell (Univ. of Liverpool, UK), John Hubbell (Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital, USA), Nora Matthews (Texas A&M Univ., USA), Stijn Schauvliege (Ghent Univ., Belgium), Mark Senior (Univ. of Liverpool, UK) and Stuart Clark-Price (Auburn Univ., USA).

Two anaesthesiologists are involved with each Module, with one covering the lecture(s) and the other acting as Discussant/Moderator.  The Discussant will be sharing his/her views, making comments and sharing valuable tips & tricks with the participants during and especially after the lecture(s).  This interactive exchange between the audience, the Speaker and Discussant provided the attendees with a well-rounded practical perspective on each topic and an ideal case-based learning environment.

The Lecture Series on Equine General Anaesthesia is complemented by a 9-hour Lecture Series on Pain Management in the Horse undergoing Standing Surgery (Drs. David Bardell & Alison Bennell, Univ. of Liverpool, UK), that is available on-demand and consists of the following 4 Modules:
