Lectures and seminars Webinar: Advances in analgesic techniques for laboratory animals - thinking outside of the box
The aim of these CPD webinars (Continuing professional development) is to follow the legal requirements for maintenance and demonstration of competence in laboratory animal science, and to facilitate the implementations of the 3R’s in routine animal work.
Clinical professor Rebecca Johnson, DVM, MS, PhD, DACVAA, Department of Surgical Sciences, School of Veterinary Medicine, University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA.
Dr. Johnson obtained her DVM from Ohio State, became Board-certified in Veterinary Anesthesiology, and received her PhD in Respiratory Neurophysiology. She is Clinical Professor and Research Anesthesiologist at University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA. Her interests include anesthetic and analgesic techniques in laboratory animals, and the effects of opioid and non-opioid analgesics on the gastrointestinal and respiratory systems of companion animals.

This webinar will focus on discussing the newest, yet most practical analgesic techniques used in laboratory animal species.
Topics will include new information concerning nociceptive physiology, novel and validated pain scoring systems, advances in clinical analgesic techniques including innovative use of pharmacologic agents, and case discussions with the ultimate goal of improving animal welfare with minimal impact on experimental outcomes.
Participants should obtain a deeper understanding of appropriate and current analgesic techniques and how to properly recognize and treat acute and chronic pain states in various laboratory animals.
