Online sessions to celebrate 10-year CEVM anniversary
The CEVM was opened to emphasise the importance of good quality research and evidence based approaches in veterinary care.

The lectures will reflect on the tole of evidence-based veterinary medicine. 

The University of Nottingham's Centre for Evidence-based Veterinary Medicine (CEVM) is celebrating its 10-year anniversary with a series of online lectures.

Focusing on the role of evidence-based veterinary medicine in both research and clinical practice, the lectures will take place online on Monday 13 December and Thursday 16 December at 7.30pm, and will be held by Dr Marnie Brennan from the CEVM, alongside Dr Rachel Dean and the team from VetPartners. 

Dr Marnie Brennan, current director of the CEVM, commented: “The 10-year anniversary of the CEVM is a great time to reflect generally on where we are with evidence-based veterinary medicine within the veterinary profession. 

“There have been some significant achievements by individuals and groups globally in harnessing this approach, not only within clinical settings but also within veterinary research.

“With the publication of the Evidence Manifesto in the Vet Record last year, it feels like the right time to be reflecting on the journey the profession has taken to date and how this could shape the future. I’m delighted that Rachel Dean and her team from VetPartners are joining us for this event.”

Co-founder of the CEVM, Dr Rachel Dean, added: “We are partnering in the Evidence Sessions as it is critical that we bridge the gap between academic research and veterinary practice to make sure the evidence generated is useful to decision makers and can really impact care. 

“It is important both groups work together to enable evidence-based practice to be a reality so we can progress care and improve outcomes for ourselves, our clients and the animals we treat.”
