We are so excited to have Sunset Vets Founder, Dr Jackie Campbell, presenting at The Vet Expo; a veterinary and animal health event held on the 18th and 19th of October 2023 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Dr Jackie‘s presentation will be on palliative care, an emerging field in the Veterinary industry and one which Dr Jackie champions through Sunset Vets and the Australian Veterinary Palliative Care Advisory Council

Information on Dr Jackie’s session is detailed below. 

Topic: Palliative care is practice – Diagnostics, Treatment & Medication Track 
Date: 18 October 2023

Palliative Care in the Veterinary field is a topic of emerging interest. As pet owners explore ever advancing therapeutic options, are we ready to effectively navigate the journey with them? How are we training and supporting our teams to ensure they are able to best manage the complex medical and emotional decision making needed for these cases? Do we know how to effectively define limits to care to prevent futility, and what can we learn from human healthcare that will help us with these increasingly important challenges?

In her session, Dr Jackie will explore some of the foundations of palliative care in practice, including:

  • What is it and why does it matter in modern veterinary medicine
  • The benefits of promoting palliative care in your practice and how to resource your teams to deliver on complex patient care plans
  • Understanding of disease trajectory and goals of care with your clients.
