As practice-life becomes busier, veterinary care assistants and other supporting roles are increasingly relied upon to assist the team with ensuring the smooth running of the veterinary clinic.

This interactive, one-day course aims to broaden skills for all VCAs, helping to expand upon key knowledge and expertise required for everyday general practice, and enhance confidence to allow VCAs to provide gold-standard patient care.

A combination of theory and practical sessions will explore the important role that VCAs play in practice and assist with building competence in core areas, thus allowing VCAs to efficiently support the practice team.

The theoretical components of this course aim to refresh knowledge in many aspects of veterinary care before moving on to hands-on practical sessions that will give the opportunity to put into practice the techniques discussed within the lectures.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Infection control and sterilisation
  • Preparation for surgical procedures and consultations
  • Handling and restraint
  • Animal behaviour and creating a stress-free hospital environment
  • Common illnesses and how to provide care for these patients
  • Common veterinary procedures and how VCAs can provide assistance
  • Husbandry for different in-patient species
  • In-patient monitoring techniques
