TimeOnline: Lymphoma

August 10 @ 08:00 - September 6 @ 23:30

$486

Lymphoma can arise in almost any tissue in the body.

It is the most commonly diagnosed haematopoietic cancer in the dog and cat; in fact the incidence of gastrointestinal and atypical feline lymphoma is increasing. Due to its varied presentation, it still can be a challenge to diagnose confidently. Thankfully, advances in laboratory technology over the past decade have improved our ability to both competently diagnose and individualise a patient’s optimal treatment.

As clients are frequently motivated to treat their pets, it is important for clinicians to not only know about the basics of the disease and its diagnosis, but also provide all options for treatment, from simple to multi-modal and cutting-edge, and feel confident administering therapy, if they wish to do so.

This course aims to provide a thorough overview of canine and feline lymphoma, from the diagnostic steps, tests that can be offered and what should be done, and how to interpret the pathology results, knowing why this is important for treatment advice. A further goal is to understand safe chemotherapy administration and appropriate drug choice for the specific presentations to maximise a successful outcome for our patients. It will cover the recognised standard-of-care therapy, plus the more novel options emerging. The course reviews the significant advances in our understanding of the spectrum of lymphoma that has emerged over the past few years that are relevant for an appropriate approach to each patient.

Veterinary nurses with a special interest in the topic are welcome to enrol in this course. Please be aware that the course is designed for qualified veterinarians and you should consider this in light of your knowledge and experience before you register.
