Emergency and Critical Care programme first to launch

Global veterinary CPD specialist Improve International has launched an online Emergency and Critical Care programme aimed at veterinarians keen to update their knowledge and increase their confidence in emergency patient management.  The programme is the first in a new series of ‘Accelerated’ courses from the company, to support those starting out on their postgraduate learning journey or experienced veterinarians who wish to refresh their knowledge in a specific subject.

The Accelerated Emergency and Critical Care programme comprises 15 engaging modules covering pathophysiology, diagnosis, management and current treatments. The modules are delivered on a weekly basis with delegates able to study at their own pace 24/7. They retain access to all modules for a 12-month period to enable them to revisit the contents as necessary. In addition to the modules, delegates have access to a discussion forum and to four live sessions with Specialists for clinical case discussions. At the end of the course, delegates have the opportunity to undertake a Foundation Certificate from the International School of Veterinary Postgraduate Studies (ISVPS).

The programme was developed by Specialist veterinarians, both Fellows and Members of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists in Emergency and Critical Care, from Improve International’s Australian Partner, the Animal Emergency Service.

Commenting, David Babington MRCVS, Business Development Director at Improve International, said: “The growing interest we are seeing from veterinarians around the world in updating their knowledge as we prepare to emerge into the post-COVID world, was the catalyst for the creation of our new Accelerated online course range.

“The Accelerated Emergency and Critical Care Programme is ideal for veterinarians at all stages of their career. It is an example of the ways we are delivering on our strategy of significantly expanding our e-learning portfolio and harnessing technologies, including video teaching and virtual/augmented reality, to offer a more engaging, affordable, accessible and rich learning experience to veterinary professionals around the world.”

About Improve International

The organisation pioneered modular CPD for veterinary professionals, combining review lectures, case-based discussion and hands-on practical sessions in their specialist wet-labs. Delegates can also choose from online and blended courses, including small animal specialisms such as surgery, medicine and feline.

Responsible for the delivery of the taught programmes, Improve International works closely with its awarding partner, the International School of Veterinary Postgraduate Studies (ISVPS) and with Harper Adams University, which provides the higher education body validation and quality assurance.
