New Evidence-Based Resource for Vets in Clinical Practice

May 04 2010

A new Centre for Evidence-based Veterinary Medicine (CEVM) due to launch this month will be the first initiative that integrates the most up to date, accurate and relevant evidence with clinical decision making in the veterinary profession. Estimated to cost around £3.5 million the Centre will be hosted by The University of Nottingham and partly funded by Novartis Animal Health. Its aims are to develop and promote the principles of evidence-based veterinary medicine in all aspects of the veterinary profession.

Director of the Centre, Dr Rachel Dean, Clinical Associate Professor in Feline Medicine, said: “Whether the patient is a small animal in a consulting room, a thoroughbred racehorse or a herd of dairy cows, to make the best possible decision for those animals, a clinician requires skill, expertise and knowledge. It is important that this knowledge is based on the best current evidence available. We want to help further bridge the gap between veterinary research and everyday clinical practice by providing and delivering the evidence in an accessible, and clear way to veterinary clinicians.”

Dr Gary Bosch, Global Head of Research & Development at Novartis Animal Health, said: “We see this collaboration as an ideal opportunity to link the resources and expertise we have at Novartis with those of an academic institution on the leading edge of veterinary teaching and research. The concept of developing therapeutic advances based on carefully examined clinical evidence fits well with our vision of delivering the most complete
and targeted solutions for animal diseases.”
