Course content

The course has a veterinary methodology and paraclinical perspective on companion animal patient work up and integrates the importance of applying a systematic approach to clinical decision making focused on the companion animal patient illustrated by the use of the problem oriented medical record (POMR) and theoretical knowledge and practical skills within key paraclinical methods. To provide the students theoretical and practical knowledge and skills for using microscopy as a solid diagnostic tool in companion animal practice. To emphasize the importance of systematic evaluation of radiographs and to provide knowledge of different image modalities applicable in companion animal clinical practice. To provide the students knowledge of ethics, welfare, management and communication tools both in respect to fellow colleagues but also the clients met in clinical practice.

Learning outcome

Having completed the course, the student should be able to:

Knowledge

  • Define, identify and discuss veterinary methodology and paraclinical tools in systematised clinical decision making in dedicated companion animal clinical practice
  • List the systematic approach to the complex companion animal patient using POMR and be able to explain, reflect about and demonstrate overview of systematic clinical decision making
  • List and explain the systematic approach to microscopy of companion animal cytology and hematology specimens
  • List and explain the systematic approach to evaluation of existing and new veterinary imaging approaches in companion animal clinical practice and their advantages and disadvantages.
  • Reflect about key ethical and welfare considerations, and the key communication and management issues in companion animal practice

 Skills

  • Apply the methodologies and tools and use and adjust relevant equipment
  • Collect, prepare, evaluate and interpret normal and abnormal blood and cytology smears from companion animal patients including differentiating between inflammatory categories and malignant and benign lesions. Plan and implement additional work up based on analysis and interpretion of these in complex clinical situations
  • Apply the systematic approach to reading and interpreting radiographs in companion animal patients and plan and implement additional work up based on analysis and interpretion of these in complex clinical situations
  • Communicate effectively and discuss relevant problems and questions within the systematic approach to complex patients with both peers and and clients

 Competences

  • Collaborate and communicate within and between both specialist, dedicated companion animal and mixed practice peers and lay persons involved in companion animal patient management
  • Plan and reflect about the use of veterinary methodology and paraclinical tools
