The American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) plans to hold joint continuing education meetings on colic and business tactics in July.
One registration fee allows participants to attend sessions for both meetings, which will take place July 24-26, in Indianapolis, Ind. Practitioners can choose from 36 available Registry of Approved Continuing Education (RACE) -approved continuing education (CE) credit hours.
CE offering a focus on colic for ambulatory practitioners assists with field management of colic, a leading cause of premature equine death. Participants will refresh their knowledge of the physiological causes of colic and explore the latest methods of diagnosing a case before it becomes life-threatening. The class will also include a complete overview of the equine gastrointestinal system. Practitioners will examine special-interest cases, including the management of colic in the pre-partum mare and foal. The program also covers client communication and case-specific presentations.
The business education course, “Transitions in Practice, Practices in Transition,” will business tactics “that work in a competitive economy,” according to the AAEP.
Participants of all levels of experience will learn strategies for proven success, including branding, marketing efforts, social media, benchmarking and employee relations. During this workshop-style meeting, participants will discuss concerns and topics relevant to their individual practices.
The deadline for early registration is July 5, after which the fee will increase $50. For registration and more information, click here.
Registrants will also receive a discounted rate to attend the 10th International Equine Colic Research Symposium, which will take place July 26-28 at the same location. For more information about the symposium, click here.
