Innovations and challenges in EAD surveillance, diagnostics and management of new diseases will be just some of the topics covered at the inaugural EAD Symposium to be held at the Australian Animal Health Laboratory’s (AAHL) Geelong facility on 5 – 6 November 2014.
The two-day symposium, organised by CSIRO in association with the Australian Government Department of Agriculture and Animal Health Australia (AHA) will bring together veterinary practitioners, animal health managers, diagnosticians and livestock industry representatives, to learn about and discuss issues regarding the recognition and management of EADs in Australia.
Staff from AAHL, AHA, the Department of Agriculture and the University of Melbourne will present on a number of topics and will also provide refresher training in EAD preparedness for veterinary practitioners including appropriate use of personal protective equipment (PPE) and correct packaging options. Participants will also learn about AAHL’s role in EAD diagnosis.
