Upcoming webinar on veterinary nursing and the law

10 February 2015

On Monday 23 February we will be holding a lunchtime webinar looking at the legal issues around veterinary nursing and their implications for the veterinary team.

Kathy Kissick, VN Council ChairmanThe free webinar, hosted by the Webinar Vet, will take place at 1pm and will be presented by Kathy Kissick, the Chair of VN Council.

During the webinar Kathy (pictured right) 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.

Please bear in mind that, whether you are a vet or VN, listening to the webinar can count towards your requirement for continuing professional development.
