Who is this course for?

Is this course for me?

If you are an RVN wanting to explore the many benefits of regenerative stem cell therapy to your patients and want to further your knowledge on the role of the nurse within this fast developing area in veterinary medicine, then this is definitely the course for you.

Join Emily our resident rehabilitation RVN tutor, as she takes you through an introduction into the world of Regenerative medicine, identify the types of patients it would benefit, any concerns around the treatment, show the ease of performing the treatment and what care is needed surrounding the whole process.

As the regenerative world grows it is important for us to be as up to date as possible with the recent scientific developments to ensure we are offering our clients the gold standard options.

Regenerative medicine is a fast-developing area in the veterinary field. For many years it has been widely accepted in the human and equine fields but not so much in small animal.

The recent increase in owner’s looking for complementary therapies has increased the need for more treatment options that are less invasive and less reliant on medication.

As Veterinary nurses or Vet’s we are in the best position to implement regenerative medicine with the correct care throughout the process. With any injury or disease, it’s not about choosing one treatment option but often a multimodal approach.

By having as many tools as possible we can achieve much better and longer lasting responses for our patients.

All our courses include small bitesize videos with an accompanying workbook, so you don't have to write a single word (unless you want an excuse to get your stationary out).

    Research shows, that online learning knowledge is easier to retain and absorb if video content is used rather than just audio, which is easier to just switch off from and become distracted. This way you can have a human connection to your tutor which is so important.

Emily Ashdown

I am a qualified Animal Physiotherapist & Registered Veterinary Nurse. I have been working with animals since I was 16 where I started as a kennel assistant at a rescue kennels. I then trained in my local practice to become an RVN. I have worked at different practices including the RSPCA Birmingham animal hospital where I gained a lot of experience and even worked on the ITV show Give a pet a home! I shortly went back to private practice and Became a Deputy head nurse where I found my passion for rehabilitation by using class IV laser therapy. Whilst working in this practice I researched the different types of Lasers and set up clinics for primarily Geriatric patients. I became very passionate about rehabilitation and in particular the difference Laser therapy was making to many of my clients and with my own working cocker spaniels. I then decided to pursue a Diploma in Animal Physiotherapy with the college of Animal Physiotherapists. I started to work for Companion Animal health as a product specialist in primarily Laser therapy but also other rehabilitation products and regenerative medicine. I still work for Companion as I have a real passion for teaching practitioner’s how to use Laser successfully but I also bought my own Laser and set up Worcestershire Animal Therapy where I offer a mobile Physiotherapy and Laser service. I also Do some work for Bromsgrove Canine Hydro and Physio where I enjoy seeing many different cases. From time to time I also still Locum in emergency Vet clinics and I teach Animal First Aid. In my spare time I’m also a member of the IAAT Committee to help push the Musculoskeletal industry and I’m fully registered as a RAMP member. I also have a certificate in Feline Medicine and would like to educate further in rehabilitation for feline’s.
