The first ever OV Conference Online – the only event dedicated solely to the CPD needs of Official Veterinarians – took place last year as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The 2020 OV Conference was a great success and offered up to 25 hours of CPD with lectures, workshops and Q&A sessions from world-class speakers in small animal, farm animal and equine streams. Recordings from the event are available to purchase now!

The OV Conference provides a unique forum in which OVs can discuss current topics of interest and recent developments in their work, as well as gaining access to exclusive offers from industry-leading sponsors. It is organised by Improve International, in association with the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA).

Key themes for 2020’s virtual event included notifiable diseases, biosecurity and disease control, and export certification.

Recordings of all the sessions are available now. The CPD can count towards OV revalidation qualifications. The event is open to all vets as well as Animal Health Paraprofessionals, nurses and practice managers.

In this fast-moving and regulated area, the OV Conference Online is your best opportunity to stay informed on the most recent developments to affect the profession and your role within it.
