Veterinary Ethics For Practitioners - Online
University of Nottingham
Date: Wednesday 10th May, 2023 - Wednesday 10th May, 2023
Start time: 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Duration: 4 hour(s)
Ethical dilemmas in clinical practice are unavoidable, and can be stressful for the entire veterinary team. Questions such as ‘Just because we can, should we?’; ‘When is enough enough?’; ‘When is euthanasia ethically justified?’ and ‘How should veterinarians react when their own ethical views are not aligned with those of their client?’, pervade modern veterinary care. This case-based half-day online course provides an opportunity for veterinarians to discuss and reflect upon the wide variety of ethical issues which can occur, and to enhance their skills in dealing with them.
Topics to be covered
Introduction to applied veterinary ethics: Theory and function
Ethics in practice: case-based discussions and feedback (small animal; equine; farm animal; ‘exotics’)
Research ethics: what you need to know about undertaking clinical research in practice
The intersection of morals, legislation and regulation: professional ethics for the ‘Vet Led Team’
Who is it for?
