History Taking and Triage for Toxic Exposures

 

This lecture will give key points to help your clinic staff become excellent history takers when a toxicology case walks in the door or calls on the phone.  Discussion will include the importance of investigative detail gathering that will provide invaluable assistance to the treating veterinarian.  An interactive style lecture, it is geared to be a “brush-up” for seasoned staff, yet thorough enough to introduce newer staff members to this potentially difficult history-taking scenario.
