VNDG to host free dermatology event for veterinary nurses in March

Learn more about the field of dermatology and gain valuable new skills at the VNDG’s spring meeting

Vet nurses are invited to join Lidiia Alaverdova, DVM, founder of Vet Reflections, for an invigorating and innovative session about applying design thinking within a dermatology clinic, hosted by the Veterinary Nurse Dermatology Group (VNDG).

Lidiia, who combines the science of veterinary medicine with her extensive experience in marketing, innovation and business, is the founder of Vet Reflections and an international speaker on communication.

“I am excited to introduce positive incremental transformations to the veterinary profession by hosting this workshop,” explains Lidiia.

“Nurses can expect to learn more about design thinking, which is essentially a problem-solving approach used to understand the patient, challenge assumptions, redefine problems and employ a hands-on approach to creating innovative solutions within the clinical setting.”

This free event will be held on Wednesday, March 23, in Exchange 3 and 4 at Manchester Central in Petersfield ahead of the British Small Animal Veterinary Association (BSAVA) Congress 2022. This year, the BSAVA Congress will be a fully hybrid event taking place from March 24-26 at Manchester Central and online.

Registration for the VNDG spring meeting takes place from 9am to 9.30am and the event will conclude by 5pm. Refreshments and lunch will be provided, and attendees will have the opportunity to explore the British Veterinary Dermatology Study Group exhibition ahead of the congress. Delegates can also benefit from free entry to the BSAVA Congress exhibition in Central Hall at Manchester Central on Thursday, March 24. To take part, sign up online.

“Dermatology is a field where you as a veterinary nurse can play a pivotal role, assisting vets in the work up and treatment of cases in clinic and supporting clients in the management of skin conditions at home,” says VNDG Group Manager John Redmond.

Dermatology makes up a third of cases seen by veterinary practices, and a veterinary nurse dermatology service offers the best way to manage these cases.

“Join us at our spring meeting for the chance to develop a unique problem-solving perspective that has the power to make a real difference to the practice, the owners and the patients.”

There will also be the opportunity for those attending to join an additional, free webinar, prior to the event to get even more from the experience. More information will follow after registration, this is an optional extra. For the chance to reimagine how dermatology cases can be handled at the VNDG spring meeting, sign up today for your free place.
