How can E-learning modules help in the delivery of laboratory animal training?


This webinar focuses on the new NC3Rs-funded e-learning modules on advanced anaesthesia, as well as further resources and the benefits of e-learning for laboratory animal professionals. 

The new modules cover anaesthetic monitoring and intraoperative care, anaesthetic breathing systems, and anaesthetic management and preventing problems. They can be incorporated into Home Office Personal Licensee (PIL) Category C training. These new resources complement the existing five modules on anaesthesia, euthanasia and pain and distress assessment.

Professor Paul Flecknell presented and answered questions. The target audience is anyone involved in training and laboratory animal anaesthesia.


Estimated review time: 26 minutes
