WCVA Venice 2018 Print
Friday, 16 February 2018

Dear All

It is for me a great pleasure and honour to inform you that Congress Registration for the 13th World Congress of Veterinary Anesthesia is now officially open! You will all relevant information on the congress website: www.wcvavenice2018.eu.

The congress will be held in Venice, in a modern Conference Centre (Terminal 103), close to the railway station and on the edge of the historic city of Venice. The facility is easy to reach (further information on the website), and Mestre, on the other side of "Ponte della Libertà", connecting Venice to the mainland, offers accommodation options ranging from budget to luxury.

The Welcome Reception will be held at the meeting Venue on Tuesday 25th September 2018. A masked Gala Dinner and ball will be held the following evening in the stunning Ca' Vendramin Palace (the Casinò Palace, the oldest Casinò in the world).

Thursday afternoon and evening you will be able to join (limited places available) a bout tour visiting the beautiful Murano and Burano.

Last, but not least, although you should have by now enough reasons to attend a memorable WCVA meeting, I need to mention the scientific programme. Topics treated will be Ketamine, ventilation, haemodynamic monitoring, use of point of care ultrasound in anaesthesia and preoperative care, stabilisation for colics, management of the critically ill foal, and ethics of end of life and in palliative care, with considerations relevant for both humans and animals. Comparative anaesthesia and perioperative care is the core subject of this meeting, driven by the charisma and knowledge of internationally known speakers. Please check the programme.

On Saturday, with programme still to be defined (coming soon) there will be a "post congress day" on locoregional anaesthesia in veterinary medicine.

This event will be a great chance to meet old friends and colleagues in a beautiful setting while attending what I believe is a Congress with a fantastic scientific (and social!!) programme.

ECVAA exams 2016 Print

Dear all,

please find below a message from Dr. S. Axiak Flammer, editor of Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia.

Dear Residents and Supervisors:

If you plan on sending your resident paper to Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia for the 2016 credentials we would ask that you submit, at the latest, by the first week of January. This will allow enough time for the manuscript to undergo peer-review and be revised, as required, before the 1st of July ECVAA deadline. Manuscripts that have been fine-tuned for language, follow the outline of the appropriate reporting guideline and that adhere strictly to the authors' guidelines usually have a smoother ride through the peer-review process with fewer aggravating delays.

Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Best regards,

Dr. Shannon M. Axiak, DVM, DACVAA

Funding through Erasmus Print
Friday, 09 October 2015

Dear All,

As we all know there are residents who would like to raise funds to visit training center(s) in other countries to complete their residency programmes, or young veterinarians who would like to be able to enroll in a residency programme, however this would necessitate visiting one or more centers abroad, which may be impossible because of the cost involved. In such cases the possibility to raise funds would be extremely helpful. In addition, in this regard it would be of great help if Diplomates could go to another center, especially where a resident follows an alternate programme, and to countries where there are no or insufficient number of European diplomates.

The Executive Committee has looked for possibilities to achieve this through the Erasmus+ programme. Erasmus+ is the EU Programme in the fields of education, training, youth and sport for the period 2014-2020. It gives opportunities to students, trainees, staff and volunteers to spend a period abroad to increase their skills and employability. The seven year programme will have a budget of €14.7 billion; As an integrated programme, Erasmus+ offers more opportunities for cooperation across the Education, Training, Youth, and Sport sectors and is easier to access than its predecessors, with simplified funding rules. Details may be found by clicking the following links:

For your convenience I have attached the Erasmus+ Programme Guide. It seems that for residents and Diplomates working in Universities or other institutions, most suitable, for training at the specialist level, is the section on MOBILITY PROJECT FOR VET LEARNERS AND STAFF, pages 51-54 (VET stands for Vocational Education and Training). The duration for learners ranges from 2 weeks to 12 months, and for staff from 2 days to 2 months. The Executive Committee would urge you to inform all the Diplomates of your college.We hope in the near future to be able to give you more information.
