This standalone module runs for 10 weeks from 16th April to 1st July, part of the programme of studies leading to the degree MSc/Dip (Clinical Management of Pain – Veterinary) at the University of Edinburgh.
Musculoskeletal pain is a common presenting problem in small animal veterinary practice. The development of veterinary licensed non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) enabled practitioners to offer safe and effective treatment for managing musculoskeletal pain. However, many dogs and cats with musculoskeletal pain and treated with NSAIDs experience little or no pain relief.
This module gives participants the opportunity to develop their understanding of the pathophysiology of musculoskeletal pain generating mechanisms, assessing pain and constructing a rational approach to pain management.
The options are to join the module as online CPD or PPD, further details can be found here, under the ‘Ten Week CPD Course’ header. Please contact the Development Team to register your interest, or if you would like more information.
