Programme

The Congress 2022 Programme in now available to stream On Demand  in the virtual platform!

Missing Lectures | Whilst the majority of our sessions are available to watch now, unfortunately some technical glitches during filming on the day, affected a small number of our lecture recordings. We apologise for this inconvenience and are working to fix these recordings and upload to the platform as soon as possible.

Content will be uploaded to the BSAVA Library once the platform closes, for continued access.

New Programme, New Format, New Learning Experience


We are excited to bring back face to face learning as BSAVA Congress returns - live at Manchester Central (24-26 March) and ON DEMAND until 27th June over on the virtual platform! 

We have completely refreshed the format for delivering CPD - you will find a variety of session styles within each module...from lectures, debates and discussions, to interactive sessions and live experiences.

Each module is designed around a topic within a clinical discipline  and will use different learning styles (see below) throughout the day to help explore the different concepts.

The majority of our live sessions were streamed on to the virtual platform for our audience to watch in real time - and now the recordings are available to view On Demand in the platform. With the exception of our practical's and Day in the Life of drama series, you can playback the lecture recordings at you own pace, collect CPD points and relive the Congress experience from the comfort of your home or workplace.

View the programme here to see which sessions are available now or will be coming soon, and the stream you will find them in via the virtual auditorium!

Learning Styles

Everybody learns differently and we all need a bit of variation in the day to keep us alert and learning at our best.

The following are available to watch On Demand in the platform:


    Interactive Sessions

    All interactive sessions are 50 minutes long and will contain multiple opportunities for delegates to vote on cases, images, results and personal experiences. Often a case based session these can be excellent to apply knowledge learnt elsewhere in the day in a practical way

    Debate & Discussion

    These sessions are one of our novel areas! Using a debate/discussion forum these sessions will explore different view points on ethical challenges we face as vets. These sessions will encourage delegate involvement in the discussion as we explore the impact of finances, owner influences and even animal self-determination concepts. Every session in this space will be a debate; yes that is 18 debates across the whole of Congress!

    Lectures

    All lectures are delivered as 2 x 15 minute short lectures given by two different speakers on a specific aspect or perspective on a topic (e.g. tumour margins from an oncologist’s point of view and from a soft-tissue surgeon’s point of view). These will all be followed by a 20 minute Q&A session where the two speakers and you, the delegates, can discuss various aspects of the lectures.

    Canine mast cell tumours: fifty shades of grading | EXHIBITOR STREAM | Watch Now

    Speaker, Alison Lee

    Canine mast cell tumours (cMCTs) are common tumours in dogs, arising in the skin, subcutis and other sites such as mucous membranes and viscera. The biologic behaviour of cMCTs arising in the skin (cutaneous cMCTs) is extremely variable: some display a benign biologic behaviour and can be cured by marginal excision, while others demonstrate malignant behaviour, with recurrence despite wide margins, and metastatic spread to lymph nodes and other viscera. Predicting the behaviour of these neoplasms can be challenging for vets and pathologists alike.

    This talk will provide a brief overview of the background to cutaneous cMCTs, followed by a discussion of the various means by which the potential biologic behaviour can be predicted. These include clinical assessment of the appearance and behaviour of the neoplasm, histologic grading (with both the three-tier/Patnaik and two-tier/Kiupel grading system), mitotic count, the immunohistochemical prognostic indicator Ki67, KIT staining pattern and PCR for mutations in exons 8 and 11 in the c-kit gene. This will give vets in practice an understanding of the various prognostic indicators available for assessment of these neoplasms, their potential limitations and in which practical scenarios they may be useful.

    Learning outcomes:

    • Recap of general background information re cMCTs
    • How cMCTs are diagnosed
    • Gain an understanding of the histologic parameters used to predict the biologic behaviour of cMCTs
    • Gain an understanding of further laboratory tests used in the assessment of cMCT biologic behaviour:
      • Immunohistochemical staining for Ki67
      • KIT staining patterns
      • c-kit PCR
