ICCVM conference in Saint Louis, MO

The International Conference on Communication in Veterinary Medicine (ICCVM) is a bi-annual conference held in the US or Canada and this year around 80 delegates were in attendance. Kim gave two presentations jointly prepared with Ruth Serlin. One was on our third year BVetMed communication skills teaching involving integrating clinical reasoning and communication skills through peer to peer learning in clinical scenarios. The other presentation was on our new model of visualising communication as an integration of clinical activities and relationship activities that we developed to engage 2nd Year BVetMed students. Both presentations were well received and are to be submitted for publication to a special issue of the Journal of Veterinary Medical Education (JVME).
