Veterinary professionals worldwide will have access to over 30 hours of online learning as they log on to the 2022 International Society of Feline Medicine (ISFM) Virtual Congress from the comfort of their own homes.
Launching live on 30 July at 1.30pm (BST), this year’s theme is “Feline Fine: how to create harmony between physical health and mental well-being in your treatment and management of feline cases”. The cutting-edge scientific programme for ISFM Virtual Congress will include lectures, interactive sessions and in-depth masterclasses from world-leading feline experts including Professor Danièlle Gunn-Moore (feline medicine specialist), Dr Sarah Heath (specialist in veterinary behaviour), Dr Matt Gurney (specialist in veterinary anaesthesia) and Professor Clare Rusbridge (specialist in veterinary neurology).
This is the third year that ISFM has hosted an annual congress event on a virtual platform, which has proven to be a resounding success, attracting over 3,000 veterinary professionals from 96 countries in 2021.
Though this year has seen the return of in-person events, including the ISFM Congress in Rhodes (30 June to 3 July), the importance of providing high-level feline education to a global veterinary audience who may not otherwise have access remains.
Dr Nathalie Dowgray, head of ISFM says: “While it was fabulous to be back in person in Rhodes this year, we cannot lose sight of the opportunity providing a virtual option gives the veterinary community.
“Giving the global veterinary community access to such top quality lectures on such an important topic is key to our mission of creating a Cat Friendly World.”
The 2022 ISFM Virtual Congress is open to all veterinary professionals, including nurses, technicians and behaviourists who are interested in the relationship between feline emotions and behaviour, and other disciplines such as neurology, pain management, and internal medicine.
The live launch of ISFM Virtual Congress will feature a short lecture followed by a live Q&A session with iCatCare’s Vicky Halls (cat friendly homing manager), Linda Ryan (registered veterinary nurse and behaviourist) and Professor Danièlle Gunn-Moore. ISFM Veterinary members will automatically receive a ticket to the Virtual Congress as part of their annual membership benefits.
