Submissions are now open for vet nurse case reports to be presented at BSAVA Congress 2024 in Manchester from 21 to 23 March.

The case report can be in any area of small animal nursing, from nurse clinics to critical care.

All submissions need to include a short synopsis of the case, using the following outline:

  • Introduction – to include the unique or interesting aspect
  • Synopsis of the case – signalment, initial assessment, physical findings, intervention, patient care and recovery, final outcome
  • Discussion – focus on the specific nursing care and interventions
  • Conclusion – the key nursing points that were learnt from the case and any specialised skills and specialised monitoring equipment used during the case

Limited availability

Due to limited availability, all case report submissions will be assessed with successful candidates chosen to present at BSAVA Congress.

Presentations will be limited to up to eight minutes, with two to three minutes of questions, overall lasting 10 minutes.

The presentations will be evaluated and an award given for the best overall report. The case reports are encouraged for submission by veterinary nurses who may not have had the opportunity to lecture before, although it is open to all nurses.

Kelly Eyre RVN, BSAVA congress committee member, said: “I’m really looking forward to the presentations and I encourage as many people as possible to attend the sessions. It’s very inspiring to see members of the nursing profession presenting their case and feel the passion from the nursing speaker.”

Case reports should be submitted to Kelly Eyre at with “case report” as the subject line.
