Current Techniques in Canine Pain Management is now offered as an online course!

"As a PT, I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to learn so much from the pain management course. I feel I'm far more knowledgeable now than I am for human patients on those topics! Greta's case study was so helpful: to hear the thought process of medical management. I don't manage medication, but I do need to know how they can affect my patients and work with docs to give feedback." –Kelli R. Koga, PT, CCRT, Lafayette, Colorado

Faculty: Patrice M. Mich, DVM, MS, DABVP, DACVAA, DACVSMR, CCRT

Prerequisites: This course is open to veterinarians, veterinary technicians/nurses, and physical therapists who have successfully completed Introduction to Canine Rehabilitation. CCRPs who are licensed veterinary or physical therapy professionals are welcome. Veterinary technicians/nurses, including CCRPs, CCRVNs, and CCRAs, must submit an Employment Agreement Letter indicating that there is a veterinarian or physical therapist either certified in canine rehabilitation working in their practice or registered for Introduction to Canine Rehabilitation.

Course Description: In this comprehensive course, pain physiology and pathophysiology are made more accessible so you can directly improve your daily practice. Assessment techniques and treatment options are covered in depth. The critical relationship between pain management and rehabilitation is strongly emphasized using a case-based presentation. An integrative approach to management of acute and chronic pain is discussed including routine and novel pharmacology, supplements, biomodulation (acupuncture, LASER, shockwave), interventional techniques (e.g. PRP, stem cell), and rehabilitation. Strategies for combining multiple treatment modalities for better outcomes are presented. This course is the online version of our Current Techniques in Canine Pain Management course.

This course is RACE approved by the AAVSB for 7 credit hours.
