Owner/Developer: Without Animal Suffering and Pain SCIENCE (WASP SCIENCE)
01 October 2010
LYON, ZURICH, and others
With this course, almost exclusively practical, every participant acquires safely the technical bases that are common to any surgery by the realization of simple exercises. The number of trainees is voluntarily limited to allow individual training, evaluation and certification for each exercise. The program includes the management of pain, infectious risks and aseptic techniques, the choice of sutures, management of haemorrhagic risk and handling of fragile tissues.The analysis of procedures proposed by the participants themselves enriches the discussion about critical points of a surgical procedure and ways to anticipate or limit complications. The course's manual, updated annually, compiles theoretical data with more than sixty colour illustrated pages. The educational impact estimated six months later, shows that on average more than 70 % of the participants modified their practices..
ETPLAS courses in France:
Hands-on training, Workshops
3 days (>22 hours)
The course is aimed at researchers and technicians who already have skills and knowledge related to animal handling, anesthesia and pain management (FELASA Level B and C, Level A & B under Directive 2010-63/UE).
Under Swiss regulations, the ASSOCIATION DES VETERINAIRES CANTONAUX validates this training as three days of professional development for study directors and experimenters.
Registration is confirmed upon reception of fully completed survey.
