BSAVA Dispensing Course Now Online
In response to COVID-19 restrictions the BSAVA’s popular dispensing course will now be held online. The accessibility of the course coincides with the RCVS’s announcement this week that practice standards assessments are re-starting. The course will be held on Thursday 26 November 2020 and is suitable for all veterinary professionals.
The BSAVA Dispensing course helps veterinary practices manage their dispensaries with up-to-date information on medicines regulations. It will cover key aspects of dispensing including an overview and update on legislation, using the cascade and the storing and disposal of medicines. There will also be sessions covering controlled drugs, dispensing mishaps and what to expect from an inspection.
Tutors Pam Mosedale, Donal Murphy, Michael Stanford, Mike Jessop and John Millward will deliver lectures via webinars throughout the day, which ends with a live streamed interactive Q+A session. The course is suitable for vets, vet nurses and other staff who deal with the dispensing of medicines and the pharmacy.
Attendees will have access to supporting resources for approximately two weeks after the course, including electronic course notes and lectures from the day and an active discussion forum.
The course meets the RCVS practice standards veterinary hospital Dispensing Course requirements and is ideal for the new PSS Medicines Award CPD requirement. It is also AMTRA accredited and carries 43 AMTRA CPD points. Attendance for the day is compulsory and an attendance register will be taken for the Live Q&A session.
Course organiser Pam Mosedale said: “We are very excited to be able to deliver the BSAVA Dispensing Course online and still allow for interaction between speakers and delegates in the live session. With Practice Standards and VMD visits restarting, it is fantastic that we are still able to support practices in these difficult times by ensuring they are complying with the Veterinary Medicines Regulations.”
The course costs £150.00 (incl. VAT) for BSAVA members and £225.00 (incl. VAT) for non-members. To book visit https://www.bsava.com/Education/CPD/Event-Detail/dateId/2099
