BVNA INVITE THE SUBMISSION OF CLINICAL ABSTRACTS FOR PRESENTATION AT BVNA CONGRESS 2017

This year we are welcoming abstracts across the profession and would like to encourage submissions from veterinary nurses in practice as well as those undertaking research as part of their academic studies. We are encouraging submissions from the following categories:

  • Clinical review in practice: What have you been doing in practice to improve protocols or compliance?  What made you undertake a review; did you complete an audit, what were your findings? How did you go about implementing change? Did you implement or enhance any SOP’s, what challenges did you face and what was the outcome? 
  • Clinical developments relevant to veterinary nursing: Have you undertaken a study that considers small animal, exotic or equine-related veterinary nursing practice from academic research?  Emphasis should be given to evaluation and improvement of clinical practice and clinical decision making. The aims should be to celebrate innovative practice, investigate good nursing practice and introduce future developments.
