We lectured in Chichester to teach nurses how to run successful mobility clinics. In the 1 hour CPD (continual professional development) the nurses learnt how to spot mobility problems in dogs and cats; how to ask the right questions to the owner for a thorough history and some basic home exercise regimes to help improve the patients life. They now know what to refer back to the vet and/or physiotherapist and which patients are doing ok so they can put the owners mind at ease.
The clinic is suited to older dogs who may be starting to show problems, any owner who just wants a free mobility check, puppy owners who want to make sure they are getting thier dog off the the best start; post operative patients who have had operations on thier joints, for 6 monthly mobility checks; working and sporting dogs who's owners just want to see if they are coping ok.
All this for free, at Downlands veterinary group
The lecture went really well! Thank you to all those that attended, you'll be great!
