Course content

The purpose of this course is to provide the students with theoretical and practical tools to perform rational diagnostic work-up and clinical decision making and to extend the participants knowledge, personal skills and competences within the discipline of companion animal surgery. The course will provide the students with theoretical and practical competences within the fundamentals of companion animal surgery as it relates to first opinion practice – in particular atraumatic tissue handling, asepsis and sterility and the problem-oriented and evidence based background for decision making in companion animal surgical procedures. The course addresses the principles of and uses a set of tools to assess the outcome of surgeries in general and to establish, perform and develop a continuous quality-assurance program in particular. As part of the responsibilities of the companion animal surgeon the course emphasizes the importance of the management of animal pain perception and individually tailored anaesthetic and analgesic management.
