In modules one and two, you will learn about the importance and physiology of pain management in companion animals, as well as the best practices for prescribing opioids to out-patients, including their potential risks and benefits.
In module three, you will work through common cases presented to a small animal veterinarian that requires you to apply your knowledge of pain assessment, pain physiology, and opioid pharmacology. We will also review information on the safe disposal and safe prescribing of opioids as it relates to common clinical scenarios.
