Welcome

Created in the early 1960s, SkiCE is one of CVMA’s longest running continuing education programs. Each January, this meeting brings veterinary professionals together to enjoy Colorado’s world-class mountain towns and to learn from some of the top minds in veterinary medicine. With education in the early morning and afternoon, attendees have plenty of time to hit the slopes, play in the snow, or just enjoy some free time. SkiCE offers veterinarians and technicians quality continuing education credit as well as a family-friendly experience at one of the world’s premier ski resorts.

 Topic

Oncology: Fighting a Disease of Emotion and Fear

Cancer is a disease of emotion and fear; get the tools you need to support your cancer patients with confidence. Join CVMA and Dr. Greg Ogilvie for an interactive weekend of oncology updates for the veterinarian and the entire veterinary health care team. This interactive, dynamic set of  lectures is designed  to explore how cancer patients and clients can be supported and treated using both the heart and science.  Participants will learn how to dissolve client fears by using the most up-to-date therapies to enhance quality of life by battling discomfort, nausea, and anorexia while fighting cancer. Fighting cancer is a team effort; arm yourself with the techniques you need to develop and equip a veterinary health care team capable of providing total care for the patient during the fight against cancer.
