We have compiled a list of our most popular sessions from previous Discussion Forums, including an overview and some questions to consider whilst watching them.
Due to Covid-19 and lockdown measures the face of CPD has changed, with courses being moved online. Watching Discussion Forum sessions online not only counts as CPD, but provides an opportunity for members of the veterinary and animal welfare professions to continue engaging with pressing animal welfare issues.
When watching these sessions we recommend that you use our reflective learning guide to maximise these learning opportunities.
To our student audience, please be aware that our Discussion Forum videos are being accepted towards EMS at some universities – check with your EMS co-ordinator to confirm. Once you’ve watched a session, you can download your EMS certificate here.
