Claire Woolford RVN VTS (Anaesthesia) sits on the BSAVA Congress programme committee and has championed this initiative 

Nurse Case Reports at Congress 2020

New for BSAVA Congress 2020, this initiative is designed to enable aspiring veterinary nurses to present interesting or novel cases at BSAVA Congress 2020. Applications are open until 4 November 2019. 

The Case Reports session has been devised by BSAVA’s programme committee to support RVNs who wish to develop their presenting ability. The session is specifically aimed at those with little or no experience of presenting and includes mentorship support (from an RVN with an advanced diploma or VTS holder) for the selected candidates.

A total of 8 winning applicants will be selected by the BSAVA Congress programme committee to present their case report. Each successful applicant will be given a 15-minute slot to present at Congress 2020, together with a complimentary Congress nurse pass for the whole of Congress for BSAVA VN members or for Saturday 4 April for non-members.

The presenter of the best case will also be awarded a BSAVA Manual of their choice.

For a chance to be involved submit a brief synopsis of your case by 4th November 2019. The Case Report must focus on small animal cases, but any species and discipline can be discussed.
