This is an 8-week course that focuses on the physiology of pain and the development of acute pain to chronic and neuropathic pain. Recognition of pain and development of a pain scale to use in your practice or facility will be strongly reviewed. Pharmacologic management of pain for companion animals will be studied in detail. Multimodal analgesia will be discussed extensively since this has been designated as the most effective way to manage pain. Physical medicine issues such as acupuncture and rehabilitation will be briefly discussed. Cancer, Quality-of-Life, Hospice and Palliative Care will be topics of discussion and study. Finally, participation in detailed case studies will enable the student to be a valuable, contributing member to the veterinary health care team in the welfare of their animal patients. Course is available on-demand allowing students to enroll at any time. Successful completion carries 25 RACE approved CE credits for licensed veterinary technicians and veterinarians.
