Another great day at #VET2016 – successes and failures of RCTs, diagnostic accuracy, mistakes & errors, designing sytematic reviews and more
At ROYAL CANIN®, we base our diets on evidence of nutritional benefit to cats and dogs, drawing on independently published studies and working with veterinarians in practice and academia to prove they work. This is why we are proud to have been the first pet food company to support the EBVM initiative and to continue our support. Partnering with RCVS Knowledge and like-minded companies in their events since 2014 has been really valuable for us and helps us bring better evidence to veterinarians in practice.
At Vets4Pets Companion Care we strongly believe that an evidence-based approach to veterinary care is the only one to take and we’re delighted that RCVS Knowledge is taking a lead on this. They have our wholehearted support.
I’m a big fan of RCVS Knowledge and what they’re trying to achieve for EBVM. Getting more rigour into clinical and non-clinical decision-making is one of the big issues we face as a profession, so their efforts are absolutely on the mark.
Norbrook is proud to have a long-established relationship with RCVS Knowledge and has been a committed EBVM Partner since 2014. Being involved in these excellent events gives us the opportunity to talk to the profession and demonstrate our support for this key development in veterinary medicine.
At Vets Now we believe that EBVM is essential to improve the lives of pets and vets. We are delighted to have supported both the International EBVM Network Conference in 2014 and Skills Day in 2015 and we look forward to 2016 being every bit as inspiring!
Evidence based veterinary medicine (EBVM) in the UK took a giant step forward with the First International EBVM Network Conference on October 23-24, 2014. The meeting was organised by RCVS Knowledge and was a huge success… The social events provided a wonderful opportunity for networking to build on existing friendships as well as creating new ones.
From start to finish, the 2014 conference was organised beautifully by the RCVS Knowledge team. We came away from the conference feeling that we had learnt a lot about evidence based medicine, that we had made some good friends and had a great time, largely due to the warmth and enthusiasm of the RCVS Knowledge team.
I had the opportunity to network with a lot of like-minded people, people who feel that the practice of veterinary medicine is best guided by good scientific evidence. It was such a great, inspiring, and invigorating conference! I can’t wait until the next one!
I have just returned from one of the most exciting scientific meetings I have ever attended, the EBVM 2014 conference organized by the RCVS Knowledge. It was inspiring to spend these two days talking with so many people full of enthusiasm for improving veterinary medicine and the care veterinary patients receive using the tools of science. Evidence-based medicine has changed the landscape of human healthcare dramatically and for the better, and I am confident it will do the same for veterinary medicine. It is truly an exciting time to be in the veterinary profession.
In my opinion I think an evidence based veterinary medicine congress could easily be an annual event here in the UK. There is a huge groundswell of opinion amongst the practising profession that we do need to shed more light on the work that we do each day.
I think it needs to start somewhere and RCVS Knowledge has really taken it by the horns. Having everyone in the same place for a couple of days, with all the latest updates is really valuable. So whether every year, or every two, it’s a great organisation and a great thing to do.
I think it’s a fantastic duty to get everyone together and to really begin to develop a framework for how to approach this complete lack of evidence in our clinical practice. I’m really excited that hopefully this meeting will get the ball rolling and get everyone doing the clinical trials, asking the right questions and addressing them afterwards.
It’s very important for us to be using as up-to-date information as we can in diagnosing and treating our patients. It’s important that we have access to that information, and also if we can provide information on research we are doing in practice that will help to drive that forward further.
I think these events are really important because they bring together people who work in research and academia, with people who work in practice – the ones who are actually collecting data, seeing cases, seeing animals, and not only at the coalface of collecting data but also at the front of evaluating evidence produced by academics.
