The World Small Animal Veterinary Association (WSAVA) has initiated the launch of ‘Teach the Teachers’ as a part of its objective to form a team of key opinion leaders (KOLs) in the area of pain management. The program has been started by the Global Pain Council (GPC) which is governed by WSAVA.
A Global Pain Scholarship competition program will identify one veterinarian and one veterinarian technician / nurse.
The GPC Scholarship will be a two-phased plan, with 8-12 weeks of small animal pain management training as the agenda for Phase One. The training will take place at a host location. In Phase Two, will allow candidates to conduct courses on pain management in their home country and educate the local veterinarians or veterinary technicians/nurses.
Dr. Duncan Lascelles, Chair of the GPC said, “All companion animals are sentient so feel pain and this is what makes pain management such an important issue for veterinary professionals. We are working to reduce the variation in the assessment and management of pain around the world through the creation of regionally specific resources and targeted education.”
