Emergency Animal Disease and Zoonotic Disease Webinar Program



For veterinarians and para-veterinary staff


NSW Department of Primary Industries, in conjunction with Local Land Services and the Australian

Veterinary Association, are relaunching the webinar program for veterinarians and para-veterinary staff

in clinical practice, including small, mixed or large animal practitioners. In addition to the 10 original

presentations, a new presentation on African Swine Fever has now been included.


The program consists of:


• 11 pre-recorded presentations, each approximately 30 minutes in length, to be viewed anytime

between Thursday 7 May and Tuesday 9 June 2020.

• 2 live Q&A panel sessions with topic presenters, each 1 hour in length on Wednesday 3 June

1.00-2.00pm and Tuesday 9 June 7.00-8.00pm (AEST).


There is no cost to participate in this program.


Veterinarians will be entitled to 6 structured CPD points if the program is completed. Viewing of all 11

presentations and participation in one of the two Q&A panel sessions are required for completion.

Please note, you are not entitled to the CPD points if you have previously completed this program.


Veterinarians may be asked to diagnose or advise on conditions with significant potential economic,

social or human health implications. This webinar program brings together speakers to enable

practitioners and clinic staff to be better informed in these areas. The Department of Agriculture and

Water Resources, and Animal Health Australia, have contributed funding for this program.
