A poorly designed score sheet for assessing animal health and welfare is unhelpful both for the animals and the experiment itself. This webinar aims to highlight the typical pitfalls that should be avoided when developing a score sheet for assessing the welfare of various animal models. Additionally, it will provide guidance on creating a score sheet that enhances the value of our research while promoting the well-being of the animals under the study. The webinar will outline several steps to help you prepare an effective score sheet for your experiment.
