Practical Clinical Pain Assessment (acute and chronic) in Dogs and Cats
This lecture will describe in detail the best current methods for assessment of clinical acute pain (perioperative and acute disease), and for the assessment of chronic pain (osteoarthritis). The methods described will be practical, and easily incorporated into a practice setting. They will be illustrated using video.
|9:30 am||Refreshment Break|
Current Perioperative Pain Treatment: Basic Approach
This lecture will outline a basic approach to the effective and practical control of perioperative pain. The principles of pre-emptive analgesia and multimodal approach will be described in practical terms. An overview of the use of opioids, NSAIDs, local anesthetics and apha adrenoceptor agonists will be given, including how to use these drugs in combination.
|10:45 am||Refreshment Break|
Feline Pain Control – An Update
The use of opioids, NSAIDs and local anesthetics will be described with reference to the cat, and the most recent research that has been performed. Case examples will be used.
Optional Catered Luncheon, Trotter Hall 2
Must be ordered by April 14
Case Examples in Perioperative Pain Management
This lecture will use case examples, both cats and dogs, to describe simple and effective analgesic regimens for neutering, laparotomy, fracture fixation, joint surgery and oncological surgery.
|2:15 pm||Refreshment Break|
Case Examples in the Management of Canine Osteoarthritis
This lecture will use case examples (both cats and dogs) to describe how to practically assess and manage pain due to osteoarthritis. Case examples will be early osteoarthritis in young animals, mild osteoarthritis in older patients and severe osteoarthritis in older animals. The examples will cover the use of drug AND non-drug therapies (such as physical therapy, acupuncture, nutraceuticals).
|3:45 pm||Questions & Answers|

B. Duncan X. Lascelles, BSc, BVSc, PhD, MRCVS, CertVA, DSAS(ST), DipECVS, DipACVS
Faculty Assistant Professor Small Animal Surgeon
North Carolina State University
Duncan Lascelles graduated from the University of Bristol in 1991, having also gained a First Class intercalated degree in Zoology. He returned to the University of Bristol where he was a Wellcome Clinical Research Scholar studying for a PhD under the guidance of Professor A.E. Waterman-Pearson. The studies were concerned with the evaluation of the concept of pre-emptive analgesia, looking at whether surgery altered the processing of pain in the central nervous system, and whether there was a modulating on this of using analgesics before the surgical stimulus as compared to after the surgical stimulus, and what effect this had on post-operative pain. He gained his PhD in the subject in 1996 after also having gained the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Certificate in Veterinary Anesthesia in 1994. He also carried out his internship at the University of Bristol.
He then moved to the University of Cambridge, UK as a resident in Soft Tissue Surgery under the guidance of Dr. R.A.S. White. He gained the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Certificate in Small Animal Surgery in 1996, the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Diploma in Small Animal Surgery (Soft Tissue) in 1999 and became a Diplomate of the European College of Veterinary Surgeons in 1999.
After a temporary lectureship in Small Animal Orthopedics at the University of Bristol, UK, he undertook a Fellowship in Oncological Surgery at the Comparative Oncology Unit, Colorado State University.
He then carried out post-doctoral research at the University of Florida (feline pain control) and is currently Faculty Assistant Professor Small Animal Surgeon at North Carolina State University. He became a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons in 2003. He organizes the Integrated Pain Management Service as part of the Surgery Service for clinical patients and has active research in the areas of: perioperative pain assessment; the mechanisms of chronic pain (osteoarthritis and cancer pain); the relationship between pain and disease; the alleviation of chronic pain. He has contributed to two books on pain management and is authoring one on practical pain management in dogs and cats. His clinical surgical interest is oncological surgery.
