2 – 5 April 2020 should have been all about the education and excitement of BSAVA Congress. Sadly, because of COVID-19 it couldn’t happen. But to help counter the disappointment of not being in Birmingham, BSAVA has put together a wealth of CPD resources and benefits. They will be rolling them out on their social media channels over the next few days.
“It’s been a strange few weeks for all of us, as COVID-19 has disrupted and altered almost every facet of daily life,” said BSAVA Chief Executive Amanda Stranack. “We wanted to let you know that we’re thinking of you this week, and to remind you that, whilst Congress isn’t happening, we’ve got a lot of fantastic resources available – and there is lots more coming soon – to help get you through this period.”
“While we don’t know how long things will be like they are, we do know that we will continue to work hard to provide first-class CPD to the profession. We will make sure to keep you up to date with what we can do to help you during this time. “

Congress on Demand
The cancellation of BSAVA Congress has left a hole in many people’s CPD year. The Association will be recording more than 100 hours of planned Congress lectures over the next few weeks, so that you don’t completely miss out on the Congress experience this year. Congress on Demandwill be ready in early May.
