Upcoming webinar on veterinary nursing and the law
The RCVS will be holding a lunchtime webinar looking at the legal issues around veterinary nursing and their implications for the veterinary team.
The free webinar, hosted by the Webinar Vet, will take place on Monday 23 February at 1pm and will be presented by Kathy Kissick, the Chair of VN Council.
During the webinar Kathy will explore the impact of the new Royal Charter on registered veterinary nurses and discuss what Schedule 3 of the Veterinary Surgeons Act means for all members of the veterinary team in regards to what procedures can and can’t be delegated to a veterinary nurse.
Furthermore, she will also consider the use of the veterinary nursing title in practice and consider any future changes to the legal status of the profession, for example, through protection of the title.
Those who wish to participate in the webinar can sign up at www.thewebinarvet.com/rcvs.
For those who are not able to listen live, a recording of the webinar will be available to download from www.rcvs.org.uk/webinars shortly after it takes place.
Veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses should bear in mind that listening to the webinar can count towards their requirement for continuing professional development.
