Welcome to two courses for veterinarians and nurses wanting to know more about how to approach oncological patients with confidence, built on updated know-how.
The course for vets is divided in two sections: the first part is focusing on how to communicate and get connected with the owner of a pet with cancer. The second section of the course targets the most frequent tumour that vets are asked to deal with: lymphoma. This disease will be approached from a clinical pathology and oncological perspective; how to diagnose correctly and how give appropriate therapy.

The course for nurses is a one day course with focus on communication and handling of chemotherapeutic drugs.
