EBVM, a thriving and growing discipline – VET2016

12 January 2017

Veterinary Evidence Today 2016 was hosted in the heart of beautiful Edinburgh. It was the second International EBVM conference, where the veterinary and allied community met to share progress and discuss the opportunities and challenges of applying evidence-based principles in practice.

Our primary goal was to increase understanding of EBVM alongside other veterinary-relevant knowledge and to introduce and provide resources that will support other contributions to EBVM. Full podcasts of the conference sessions are available free for download here.

We are committed to making our conferences accessible to all members of the veterinary community – as such – we offered a range of bursaries available for VET2016. We offered bursaries for those in early career, veterinary nursing, students, returnees and information specialists. You can watch video testimonials from some of our bursary winners below.

Our bursary winners have all contributed towards a Knowledge Summary for Veterinary Evidence – our online resource. Read these in full:
