Central CPD
Clinical Courses for Vets and
Veterinary Nurses in Central London
Jo Hillard began Central CPD in Central London in 2009. Her objective at the
outset was to bring London quality CPD courses for the Veterinary Profession,
using lecturers that are well known and respected within their chosen
discipline. Jo felt that, as a practicing vet, she had learnt from CPD courses
in other regions of the UK and wanted to ensure that vets based in London
had the same access to quality, regular courses.
The course timetable focuses on topics that are current and relevant for
vets working within small animal practice. Jo includes courses that she
herself would benefit from as a vet working in a first-opinion practice.
Delegate numbers are limited for courses so the days are relaxed and
interactive seminars rather than more formal lectures. Central CPD want to
ensure that each delegate benefits individually from the course and takes
something new back to their practice. Central CPD added Veterinary Nurse
courses in 2010 and this year are very excited to be adding Practical Courses
to their timetable in response to delegate requests.
A member of the Central CPD team attends every course to ensure that you
have a positive experience.

Date: Wednesday 1st May 2013
Location: King’s College,
Waterloo, London
Price: £185 +VAT
Lecturer: Jon Bowen BVetMed
DipAS(CABC) MRCVS
Course Synopsis:
Obesity is a factor in a number of

skin, urinary tract and metabolic
disease. Cats seem to respond
quite poorly to weight loss
programmes, and the newly
developed obesity drugs are not
suitable for this species. This
day-long course will cover a range
of information that can be used
not only to improve the success
of feline weight loss programmes,
but also to improve cat welfare
and owner compliance.
Topics to be covered include:
• Normal feline behaviour

improve acceptance and
compliance
• Environmental and behavioural
modification to increase feline
weight loss

Lecturer: Rob Foale BSc BVetMed
DSAM DipECVIM-Ca MRCVS
Course Synopsis:
This day-long course will look at
the challenges often faced in the
diagnosis and treatment of common
endocrine diseases. Sometimes
the challenge can be diagnosing the

forward and rewarding cases
to treat, but what about those
frustrating cases that haven’t read
the textbook? This course will
concentrate on these more difficult
cases, from complicated diabetics

ECGs Made Easy

Location: King’s College,
Waterloo, London
Price: £285 +VAT
Lecturer: Joao Loureiro DVM CertVC
DipECVIM-CA (Cardiology) MRCVS RCVS and
European Specialist in Veterinary Cardiology

gained in planning the management
of their cases. Practical ECG
readings will be used to consolidate
the theoretical knowledge.

Surgical Oncology
Date: Wednesday
4th December 2013
Location: King’s College, Waterloo,
London
Price: £285 +VAT
Lecturer: Nick Bacon MA VetMB
CertVR CertSAS DECVS DACVS MRCVS
Clinical Assistant Professor, Surgical Oncology
Course Synopsis:
Surgical oncology requires a
separate skill set and mentality to
much orthopaedic or soft tissue
surgery. Questions about diagnosis,
staging and prognosis mean
increasingly the surgeon is not ‘just
cutting out’ the tumour, as clients
are becoming ever well-informed,
with increasing expectations.
Many expect to be given a range
of options. This lecture will provide
a grounding in surgical oncology
principles, from which it is hoped
an awareness of tumour biology
will lead to improved surgical
planning, and ultimately better
decision-making for the patient.
Topics to be covered include:
• Examples of common tumours
in difficult locations and how best
to deal with them
• Possible reconstruction options
after surgical excision
• Why some wounds refuse to
heal, and how some common
reconstruction problems might
be avoided

Home, London
Price: £985 +VAT
Lecturer: Joao Loureiro DVM CertVC
DipECVIM-CA (Cardiology) MRCVS RCVS and
European Specialist in Veterinary Cardiology
Course Synopsis:
This highly practical course aims to
give delegates the confidence to
perform diagnostic echocardiography
in practice. Delegates will learn
how to achieve the standard
echocardiographic views in dogs
as well as giving an overview of the
echocardiographic changes seen
in common acquired and congenital
cardiac diseases in the dog and
cat, with normal dogs as well as real
clinical cases used over the two
days to consolidate theory.
The first day will focus on machine
set up, common artefact, 2D and
M-mode studies. The second day
will cover more advanced features
of echocardiography such as
Doppler studies and evaluation of
myocardial function.
The course will have a large practical
component and at the end of the
two days candidates should feel
confident to achieve the standard
echocardiographic views on the right
and left side, perform M-mode and
Doppler studies in a variety of dogs.
Numerous examples of common
diseases such as valvular endocar-
diosis, dilated cardiomyopathy
and feline cardiomyopathies will be
reviewed and examples of congenital
diseases such as pulmonic stenosis,
patent ductus arteriosus, and
ventricular septal defects will also
be discussed.
Topics to be covered include:
• How to set up your ultrasound
machine to get the best image
• Standard echocardiographic
views and useful measurements
to make a diagnosis
• Learn how to use Doppler
echocardiography
• Identify the typical echocardiographic
changes seen in common
acquired and congenital cardiac
disease
• The high practical component
of the course will ensure that
candidates will leave feeling
confident about achieving the
same views in their own practice

Course Synopsis:
This two day practical course is
unusual in that it is wholly practical –
there are no didactic lectures but
all learning is based around the
ultrasound machines looking at
both normal abdomens as well as
real clinical cases. We will cover
machine set up, which probe to use
and how to optimize the image to
make sure you can get the best out
of your machine in practice. Body
systems covered will include the
liver and gallbladder, spleen, GI tract
and urogenital tract, learning how to
recognize what is normal and how
to classify any abnormalities noted.
Delegates will learn how to achieve
standard views of the abdomen,
which measurements are useful
to take and what they mean when
making a diagnosis.
This course will give delegates the
confidence to perform diagnostic
abdominal ultrasound in practice on
a wide variety of cases.
Topics to be covered include:
• The ultrasound machine – how
to use the machine to its
best effect
• Familiarising yourself with the
normal in order to recognize
the abnormal
• Imaging the liver, gallbladder,
spleen, GI tract and
urogenital tract
• Useful measurements to take,
how to take them and what
they mean
• Actual clinical cases to
consolidate the practical
knowledge learnt
Supported by:
Very useful, will definitely be able to use
what I’ve learnt in practice

Location: King’s College,
Waterloo, London
Price: £185 +VAT
Lecturer: Grant Petrie MA VetMB
CertSAC CertSAM MRCVS
Course Synopsis:
This interactive day course will
demistify the management of
diabetes mellitus – a common
endocrine disease where the
diagnosis is usually fairly straight
forward, but the management
can present a challenge for the
whole practice team. Furthermore,
the complications that can arise
from incorrect or inappropriate
management can be more
problematic than the disease itself.
Using plenty of clinical cases to
support theory, there will be
discussions on, among other
things, diabetic clinics, the use
and misuse of blood glucose
curves, getting cats in to remission,
the value of home monitoring
and new technology available to
facilitate it.
Topics to be covered include:
• The use and misuse of blood
glucose curves
• How to get cats into remission
• The value of home monitoring
• Diabetic clinics – how a team
approach to your diabetic cases
can achieve the best results
