Biosecurity in practice: working together to prevent infectious disease
One Health aims to understand and address health and disease arising from the intricate relationship between human, animal and environment through multidisciplinary collaboration. Today more than ever, veterinarians must play a key role in preventing infectious diseases not just in animals but the animal care team as well.
This talk will focus on approaching infection prevention through the One Health lens and will expand on examples of human and animal health that can be applied to small animal practice. The importance of vaccination, antibiotic stewardship and their role in One Health will be discussed.
