effusion, confusion and collapse

We are excited to bring to you a day of clinical and wellness lectures. Liz and Scott will take you through cardiac and non-cardiac causes of collapse and effusions. These lectures will enable you to take a practical approach to these cases in both cats and dogs. The content will be delivered via webinars taken from the live interactive sessions that we held on our virtual day. The wellness lectures include the speakers – Katie Ford, Claire Grigson, Chloe Hannigan and Rosie Allister.  Access to this content will be available to all registered delegates for 12 months from the date of the event.

speaker biographies

Liz Bode

Director, Cardiology Specialist

show
Liz graduated from the University of Liverpool in 2006. After spending some time carrying out voluntary work with SPANA, Liz took up a job in mixed practice in East Yorkshire. Shortly after this, Liz completed an internship at the University of Cambridge and solidified her love for all things cardio. She subsequently embarked on a PhD at the University of Manchester looking at cellular calcium handling in heart failure and ageing and was awarded her doctorate in 2013. After another spell in small animal practice Liz completed her residency in cardiology at the University of Edinburgh in 2017. Following her residency she worked at the University of Liverpool as a senior lecturer in small animal cardiology. More recently, she was awarded Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy and has taken on the role of Module Co-ordinator for the CertAVP cardiology modules at the University of Liverpool. She currently works at Chestergates Veterinary Specialists in the UK.

Scott Kilpatrick

Director, Internal Medicine Specialist

show
Scott graduated from Edinburgh Vet School in 2007. Initially, he worked for the PDSA, before taking a Senior Veterinary Surgeon position with Vets Now in Edinburgh in 2010. Scott started his residency in internal medicine at the University of Edinburgh in 2012 after completing a year as a Teaching Fellow in Anatomy and Physiology. He completed his residency in 2016 after finishing his Masters in the pathogenesis of canine liver disease and has since been working in referral practice. Interventional radiology is something that really interests Scott and he spent some time in 2018, working in this area at UC Davis in California. Scott has created and delivered a Post-graduate Certificate in Small Animal Emergency Medicine in association with the University of Surrey. Scott is currently the Head of Internal Medicine at Wear Referrals.

Chloe Hannigan

show
Chloe understands first-hand the challenges of trying to find time to balance self-care alongside practicing as a vet. Since qualifying from the RVC in 2012, she has worked in mixed and small animal practice, and as a locum across the UK, Australia, and NZ. Yoga, her once-hobby, gradually became a serious habit and then a lifestyle. Together with meditation it gave her ways to better manage the mental stresses, emotional drains, and the physical aches and pains that come with being a vet. She qualified as a yoga teacher in 2017 and founded VetYogi the same year. She completed her 500 hours yoga teacher training in India at the start of 2020 and teaches Hatha, Vinyasa, and Yin yoga. Though looking forward to when we can all come together in-person again, Chloe has been teaching/speaking in virtual classes/events throughout the pandemic.

Claire Grigson

show
Claire is an experienced charity veterinary surgeon, certified life coach and meditation teacher. After going through her own personal challenges, she experienced a transformation in her mindset through coaching, and is now finding her purpose though supporting others to do the same. She is passionate about empowering others to believe in themselves and make positive sustainable change in their lives. A key part of this on her own journey was connecting with her authentic self and improving her self-relationship. Meditation was one of the key techniques that she used, and now she uses her experience and knowledge in this, to support others to be able to bring more peace, focus and clarity into their lives.

Katie Ford

show
Katie graduated with distinction from the University of Liverpool in 2012. Since then she has continued to work in small animal first opinion practice, gaining her RCVS Certificate in Internal Medicine in 2017. Realising the power of preventative mindset strategies through her career and journey, she trained as a coach and in CBT, and now teaches other professionals how to use these techniques to thrive in the veterinary world. She regularly helps individuals and companies on topics such as gratitude, self-worth and dealing with imposter syndrome. She was the keynote speaker at BVNA 2020, and has spoken on stages across the world. Aside from being a personal development and human potential enthusiast, she co-runs a virtual event company and can be seen behind the scenes masterminding tech on many events in the veterinary space.
