To enter the competition nurses must log in to www.vetnurse.co.uk and visit the dermatology
gallery. Then simply upload a photo or short video from a recent dermatology case they have been
involved in and add a brief description about the case.
The BSAVA Nurse Merit Award in Dermatology course is delivered by renowned specialist
dermatologists, Sue Paterson and Natalie Barnard, and comprises two days of theory and a practical
day at Bristol University. In addition to the study, each nurse is required to submit a case project.
“The latest course was fully booked and we already have a waiting list for the next course, a
testament to the quality of training on offer and the high regard in which a BSAVA Veterinary
Dermatology Award is held,” explains Cathy Gurney, Managing Director at Vetruus.
On passing the BSAVA Nurse Merit Award, in Dermatology, each nurse also automatically qualifies
to become a Vetruus Dermatology Nurse Advisor. “We are keen to support nurses and practices
with both formal training and informal tutorials, such as Vetruus Bites online videos. We want
Vetruus Dermatology Nurse Advisors to become a key part of patient care,” added Cathy.
The BSAVA Nurse Merit Award in Dermatology course normally costs £510 to BSAVA members and
£763 to non-members and the competition closes on 31st December 2017.
