Animal welfare is high on the agenda for JMICAWE partners, at KVASU
Animal Welfare is high on the agenda for JMICAWE partners, Kerala veterinary and animal science University
Animal welfare has become a hot topic for vets, following the successful second of three British council funded animal welfare workshops for the veterinary faculty staff at the KVASU and run by the JMICAWE.
To demonstrate their commitment to and engagement with, further training and awareness in animal welfare, the KVASU has launched an animal welfare section to their University website. The plan is to develop this as an important resource to help staff and students have easy access up to date information about animal welfare issues, teaching resources and up to date research. http://kvasu.ac.in/animal-welfare-news .
Animal welfare is increasingly being internationally recognised as an essential component of the veterinary curriculum – and Indian veterinary schools are required to deliver animal welfare and ethics training as part of their teaching. With this new development, KVASU hope to lead the way in demonstrating how animal welfare science can be effectively embedded using a problem based approach for delivering relevant content.
