Video Presentations: 2016 CVMA Summit - Antimicrobials in Animal Health - The New Reality

Key stakeholders from the veterinary community, producer groups and regulators from across Canada gathered in Niagara Falls, Ont. at the 2016 CVMA Summit to discuss the growing concern about antibiotic resistance in both veterinary and human medicine, and the new reality it creates for the veterinary profession: the need for increased oversight of antibiotic use in animals. 

The CVMA, in close collaboration with the Canadian Council of Veterinary Registrars (CCVR), also presented a draft document at the all-day Summit, titled, “Veterinary Oversight of Antimicrobial Use – A Pan-Canadian Framework for Professional Standards for Veterinarians.” 

Feedback from the Summit discussions will help finalize the document.
