The 29th FECAVA Euro Congress promises a stimulating program in Athens from the 12th to 14th September 2024. Set against the backdrop of one of Europe's most iconic cities, the congress will be a hub for professionals in companion animal veterinary medicine.

The scientific program of the Euro Congress boasts a diverse array of topics, showcasing the latest advancements, emerging trends, and best practices in companion animal veterinary medicine. Experts spanning various disciplines will present insightful lectures and conduct interactive workshops, offering attendees a unique opportunity for professional development and networking.

One notable aspect of the congress is the Veterinary Nurse stream, supported by ACOVENE (Accreditation Committee for Veterinary Nurse Education). Scheduled for Thursday, September 12, 2024, this stream will feature lectures by esteemed professionals like Matthew Rendle RVN and Adina Valentine CertECC CertVNES NCertRVN from the UK.

Matthew and Adina, both experienced lecturers, will delve into crucial topics in veterinary nursing, offering practical insights and expertise. Their lectures will cover a range of subjects including fluid therapy, welfare-minded blood sampling, clinical nutrition, anaesthesia principles, and anaesthesia monitoring.

Matthew, in addition to his contributions to the Veterinary Nurse stream, will also present a lecture in the main stream. Titled "UK Veterinary Nursing - Team Work Makes the Dream Work!", Matthew's talk promises to be informative and engaging, drawing from his extensive experience in nursing care across diverse species. Matthew's expertise is unparalleled. He has also had the privilege to travel around the world as part of his professional endeavors, further enriching his understanding of veterinary nursing practice.
