Equine hindlimb lameness (incl. objective gait analysis) and therapies

In conjunction with:

Course description
Developed for equine veterinarians who have experience with lameness investigations, this practical course provides a critical overview of possible causes of hindlimb lameness, diagnostic anesthetic strategies and how to interpret nerve and joint block results, via a regio-anatomic approach. Discussion on the upper hindlimb as a cause of lameness (hip joint, pelvic and sacroiliac problems) and on system and intra-articular joint therapies will round the course off.  The 7 hours of practical and case-based sessions will give attendes plenty of opportunity to further their practical skills on live horses and limb specimens in small groups (2-3 people per ultrasound machine).

Companion Animal Point-of-Care Ultrasound: rapid techniques any practitioner can perform 

Course description 

This workshop is designed to increase your knowledge and skills used in emergency point-of-care techniques, through a series of case-based interactive lectures and practical hands-on training. You will learn techniques that will help you with your diagnostic and treatment decisions on a daily basis, going far beyond the emergency room. Presented by internationally recognised Dr Soren Boysen from the University of Calgary and supported by highly-skilled tutors

Tutors

Soren Boysen DVM, Dipl. ACVECC

Extensively published (more than 80 papers/chapters), and a recipient of numerous teaching and research excellence awards, Dr. Boysen has become an internationally recognized speaker. He and his colleagues from Tufts changed the practice of veterinary medicine when they developed and introduced the profession to FAST exams, and with colleagues at the University of Calgary, adapted veterinary point of care ultrasound for use in non-trauma patients. With the help of many great colleagues from around the world, he continues to develop ultrasound training techniques and workshops for non-specialist practitioners. Along with point of care ultrasound, his research interests include hemorrhage, coagulation, and perfusion.
