ACOVENE are pleased to announce a very successful pioneering conference for veterinary technicians at the East European Regional Veterinary Conference (EERVC) in Croatia. EERVC is a new small animal veterinary conference designed to serve the continuing education needs of veterinarians and veterinary nurses/technicians in the wider Eastern European region.
Two speakers attended on behalf of ACOVENE, and lectures included basic general nursing, infection control, theatre practice and professional communication. The lectures were interspersed with some very popular practical sessions on barrier nursing and bandaging. Between 30 and 50 delegates attended the sessions, some of which were attended by veterinary surgeons. The feedback on the day was fantastic, with the vets and technicians all taking different points away with them in order to progress their own practise.
