Approaching the Itchy Dog - A Guide for Nurses
Nurses can play a key role in assisting vets in working up these cases, and in helping clients to understand the reasoning behind the steps that we need to take. The key to this is understanding the basis processes and steps that need to be taken in order to reach a diagnosis and to come up with a tailored plan for that patient and client.
In this webinar we'll break down these processes so that you can understand what we should be doing, and why, and where your skills can be utilized most effectively.
