This online course is intended for veterinary surgeons working in clinical practice who would like to develop confidence in their approach to patients with anaemia.
The course will begin with triage of the anaemic dog or cat and the prioritisation of investigations based upon clinical findings. We will explain how to classify aneamia as regenerative or non regenerative anaemia and follow a logical diagnostic approach to both in the dog and cat as well as looking at the evidence base for the different treatment options available.
Online activities (including quizzes and case studies) will support your learning and discussions on the online forum will be encouraged. We also provide additional resources to complement the course - the ‘BSAVA Bonus Bits’. These will include congress podcast recordings, JSAP and companion articles as well as a free chapter from the relevant BSAVA Manual (as well as a discount voucher for purchasing the whole book).
The first weekly unit will be released on the First Friday of the month, with the next weekly units being released on the following two Fridays. The discussion forum is open for the first three weeks of the course and the course content will remain available for a total of 8 weeks. You can complete the work how and when you choose over these 8 weeks.
