Safe Use of Chemotherapy in Practice

With chemotherapy procedures now being a commonplace veterinary treatment option, it is of utmost importance that veterinary staff understand the safety measures that must be taken to protect staff when performing chemotherapy procedures in practice.

It is also vital to consider the implications for patients and their owners and families when patients are discharged into the home environment.

This course will explore the various aspects of safety and give participants the tools to create an outline safety policy for their place of work. You will also have the opportunity to discuss challenges and cases from practice with your tutor and fellow course participants.
