The course (SHUA13010U) is a function A/B/D course according to the EU Directive 2010/63/EU Article 23.2 (previously designated category C), accredited by the Federation of European Laboratory Animal Science Associations (FELASA) as well as the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries under the Danish Government.
The course gives as practical and theoretic introduction to handling, housing and using laboratory animals and how to replace, refine and reduce the use of live animals for research.
The course adheres to the EU Directive 2010/63/EU and the more detailed learning outcomes described by EU's expert working group in ' A working document on the development of a common education and training framework to fulfill the requirements under the Directive'
Hands-on training, Interactive online resources, Lecture, Recorded tutorial
Basic knowledge in physiology, anatomy and pharmacology.
Refinement, Reduction, Replacement
Carrying out procedures on animals, Designing procedures and projects, Taking care of animals, Ethics, Legislative aspects
No species is addressed specifically
