About the course
Headshaking remains a real challenge for clients and equine clinicians. Significant advances have been made into understanding the pathophysiology of the disease. However, patient management remains a real challenge. This series will review all the recent advances in the field of headshaking and translate this into practical advice about patient management. We are excited to be able to include a lecture from a human specialist in trigeminal neuralgia.
Starting on 28th June, each week we will release two new topics discussed by one of the world’s leading experts in headshaking for viewing at home. At the end of the course on 20th July we will have a live discussion session. Lectures will remain available for watching on demand, along with the recording of the live session.
Key learning objectives
- Review the current knowledge on the pathophysiology of equine headshaking
