  • 2019-07-18 10:19:15.0 Congratulations to Dr David Singleton
  • To mark ten years of The Small Animal Veterinary Surveillance Network (SAVSNET), we held an event to showcase the research being done using electronic health data from veterinary practices and laboratories, and how it is informing primary veterinary practice. 

     

    Some forty delegates came including from the USA and Portugal.  Day One was a series of talks ranging from an update on vaccination including parvovirus, antimicrobial resistance and antibacterial use, and the role of ticks in disease.

    On Day Two there was a practical demonstration of practice based research using big data. Delegates worked on projects of their own choice including otitis, fleas and muzzling, experiencing the real power of health informatics research first hand. 

    Suzanne Jarvis, Deputy Editor of the Veterinary Record, joined us to celebrate SAVSNET's birthday.  You can read her write-up of the day here

    Some of our friends from the Health e-Research Centre at University of Manchester joined us too - read their write-up here.
