Welcome Farm Vet Champions!
Watch this mandatory video where Fiona Lovatt, Clinical Lead, discusses why this project was launched, how important it is and the main principles of being a Farm Vet Champion.
This module includes all the need-to-know facts about the use of antibiotics in practice, and why as a profession we should prioritise reducing our usage. From a reminder about what antimicrobial resistance is, to the legal and responsible use of antibiotics, this essential module will help you follow and create protocols for your medicine usage.
Effective communication with your clients is critical in improving animal safety and antibiotic usage. Communicating is not simply just talking. This module contains a selection of webinars from a variety of organisations, covering a wide range of communication and behaviour models that you can implement to evaluate your own communication skills and improve your communication with your clients.
