This certificate will allow nurses to develop and advance their skills to enable them to assess the impact of external factors and wider environmental influences on the behaviour of veterinary patients. You will devise appropriate programmes for the prevention of problematic behaviour, utilising the highest professional standards, skills and knowledge to improve the health and welfare of patients.
