2013 Partners in Veterinary Education Conference
Pain Management & Osteoarthritis – 18-19 July 2013
Animals feel pain just like humans. As pets become more important in the family group, owners have become acutely aware of the need to manage pain in their pets.
The aim of this two-day conference is to provide practitioners with up-to-date practical information on mechanisms of pain and simple, effective management strategies for common scenarios faced in veterinary practice. Speakers will try and rationalise approaches to pain management based on the understanding of the pathology and physiology of disease , and also evidence based outcomes. The conference will also explore the emerging area of stem cell therapy particularly in tissue repair, OA and separate evidence from myth. Christopher Little, a former specialist equine surgeon and now internationally recognized researcher into OA and stem cell therapy, will provide an overview of the role of stem cells and possible future applications.
This conference will provide practitioners with valuable practical information that can be integrated into their practice. We look forward to seeing you there.
The conference will be held at the Veterinary Science Conference Centre, University of Sydney (Camperdown Campus):
