RESEARCH PROJECT | The Body Condition Score and Patient Weight Management: The Veterinary Nurse’s Role

BVNA Member Natalie Hofman is conducting research to investigate the veterinary nurse’s role in identification and education of weight management and the body condition score in veterinary practice.

Natalie is currently studying for her Bsc in Veterinary Nursing at the Royal Veterinary College.

The project aims to be relevant to clinical practice to see whether, or how often, the body condition score is being used on patients. Results from this may indicate whether owner education about weight management in companion animals needs to be improved within veterinary practice.
