As I am on a hiatus from social media (well, Facebook to be more precise), it’s hard to get notices out of events that may be of interest.
However, it can’t help to give a final push via the Veterinary Careers news section
On the 18th of May, the AVPH are hosting a 1hr webinar on smallholders and biosecurity.
As a veterinarian who has a thing or two to say about surveillance and biosecurity, there are some genuine concerns about how we can engage with such producers/farmers/enthusiasts.
This webinar is part of a bigger planned output from AVPH and the AVA.
On the 9th of June, the AVPH will be hosting a 1-day workshop at the University of Melbourne that is designed for private practitioners who want to upskill their technical skills and knowledge of notifiable diseases with regards to smallholder farmers. This is a collaboration with DPI NSW, Agriculture Victoria, The Mackinnon Project (University of Melbourne), Charles Sturt University and 3M. Further details can be found on the AVA website.
DPI NSW have also launched a 2 hour, free e-learning webinar to provide Australian veterinarians with the foundational know-how of how biosecurity works within Australia as well as valuable resources. Further details are in the link below and requires registration on the DPI’s EMTrain website
Lots going on, but a fun time to get involved.
See you all tomorrow at the webinar!
