43rd WORLD SMALL ANIMAL
VETERINARY ASSOCIATION CONGRESS
AND 9th FASAVA CONGRESS
25-28 September, 2018 | Singapore
The provision of continuing education (CE) to clinicians in order to advance companion animal practice globally is one of the key pillars of our work and is led by our CE Committee
WSAVA's primary purpose is to advance the quality and availability of small animal medicine and surgery, creating a unified standard of care for the benefit of animals and humankind. As “Global Veterinary Community” is our tagline, being a part of WSAVA also creates a space in which we can help each other and to generate a “One global voice” from the veterinary profession to contribute to the world.
“Ready access by healthcare professionals to pharmaceuticals (e.g., medicines, anesthetics/analgesics, etc), biologicals (e.g., vaccines, etc), parasiticides, and antiseptics is one of the key pillars of appropriate patient care, whether in human or veterinary medicine. Inequities in availability and access exist between various regions of the world for a variety of reasons. We call upon key stakeholders (regulatory authorities, manufacturers, and healthcare professionals) to seek solutions that would broaden access while maintaining the sanctity of the veterinary-client-patient+/- pharmacist relationship, where warranted.”
This joint position statement stems from an earlier more comprehensive WSAVA statement (in the Resources section) which was developed based on member engagement on this issue.
We’re delighted that the following WSAVA members have already endorsed our Position Statement:
The WSAVA represents more than 200,000 veterinarians worldwide through 105 member associations. Each month different members in this area will be featured with information about them, their practice and their interests.
