In 2019, veterinary education company Improve International Australia will join with emergency specialist group Animal Emergency Australia (AEA) and bring another level of continuing education (CE) opportunity to the Australian veterinary community.
The two companies, who will formally begin working together from 1 January 2019, see the union as an exciting partnership, with the ultimate beneficiaries being veterinarians and nurses who are looking for progressive continuing education options.
“As a CE provider, one of our biggest tasks is ensuring our content remains current, practical and of the highest standard,” Improve International Australia managing director Dr Brooke Sheehan said.
“The relationship with AEA will allow us to keep our finger on the industry’s pulse and to leverage the extensive experience and knowledge of the vets and nurses within AEA.”
AEA owns and operates Animal Emergency Service, Perth Vet Emergency, and Pet Intensive Care Unit veterinary hospitals. The team includes an emergency specialist, residents in training, and numerous ANZCVS members. Continuing education and career development have been a major focus for the group.
“We see continuing education as vital to the development of vets and nurses, and to the provision of quality patient care,” AEA director Dr Rob Webster said.
“We’re excited to be working with Improve to develop and grow their suite of courses for the Australian market.”
