ISFM launches Cat Friendly Courses

To support the global success of the ‘Cat Friendly Clinic’ programme, the International Society of Feline Medicine (ISFM) is pleased to announce the launch of two new cat friendly courses aimed at individuals working in veterinary practice.

The Cat Friendly Veterinary Professional course is aimed at vets and nurses and covers all aspects of being cat friendly over six modules, including understanding where cats come from, their behaviours, stress free handling, how to be more cat friendly in practice and client communication.

The Cat Friendly Veterinary Receptionist course is aimed at receptionists and includes everything a receptionist needs to know about cats and how to be cat friendly across four modules, including their role in making the practice cat friendly.

Both are 3 month online courses, with students working through the modules at their own pace. There is a short assessment at the end of each module and on successful completion of the course students will receive a certificate and badge.

Sarah Endersby, ISFM’s Veterinary Development Manager, comments, ‘We are very excited to offer cat friendly training for individuals. The courses are suitable for all members of the practice team, and you do not have to work in an accredited Cat Friendly Clinic to study with us, meaning that there is something for everyone’.
