Dechra Academy First Veterinary Education Provider To Become Accredited Learning Provider
12th December, 2022 11h09
Dechra Academy has become the first veterinary education provider to be awarded as an internationally recognised and peer-reviewed accredited Learning Provider by the Learning and Performance Institute (LPI).
The award is in recognition of the Dechra’s commitment to high quality learning and development services to veterinary professionals in the UK and across the world. To achieve the prestigious accreditation, Dechra’s Digital Learning team’s educational content, processes and services were reviewed and benchmarked against key opinion indicators by an LPI consultant.
Dechra Academy was first established in the UK in 2010 and has since launched in over 20 additional countries across the world. Last year, over 5,000 veterinary professionals in the UK completed over 9,000 courses and there is currently over 60 hours of free CPD content available across the company’s key therapy areas including endocrinology, dermatology, analgesia and anaesthesia, nutrition, equine analgesia and anaesthesia and locomotion.
During 2022, the company added 14 new courses to Dechra Academy covering analgesia and anaesthesia, dermatology, nutrition, internal medicine, vaccines and udder health and Dechra has just launched the first of two new courses in its ‘Purffect Partner’ series. This series focuses on identifying and treating unintended feline weight loss and a further four case studies will be added in the coming months.
Jack Dickinson, head of digital learning at Dechra, comments: “I’m delighted that Dechra Academy has been awarded the status of being an internationally recognised and peer-reviewed accredited Learning Provider by the Learning and Performance Institute (LPI). We’re passionate and proud to provide veterinary professionals with interactive and challenging learning experiences through the Dechra Academy to help them continuously evolve their knowledge and ultimately provide the best care for their patients.”
