KSVDL Continuing Education Conference: Changes in Veterinary Antibiotic Regulations: What These will Mean to the Practitioner
The Conference will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn in Manhattan.
The FDA has instituted more restrictive antimicrobial-use regulations that will instantly change how you, the veterinary practitioner, will practice in the near future. On November 8, 2014, the Kansas State Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory will sponsor a national continuing education conference that will focus on the key effects these new regulations will have on the future use of antimicrobials in veterinary practice. This national conference will include an expert panel of speakers including: international practitioners who have been under similar antimicrobial regulations for many years; academic pharmacologists; U. S. regulatory authorities, and various producer advocates. While the presentations and interactive discussions will focus primarily on the impact the new antimicrobial use regulations will have on the practicing veterinarian, the conference is open to any interested individual.
