Competent Veterinary Dispenser Award (CVD)
Whilst veterinary surgeons are responsible for ensuring that veterinary medicines are handled and dispensed according to the Veterinary Medicines Regulations, many vets delegate the processes of acquiring, storing and dispensing medicines to non-veterinary colleagues. In order for this to take place legally, as regulated by the Veterinary medicines directorate and the Royal College of Veterinary surgeons within their Practice Standards Scheme, anyone who handles a veterinary medicine must be deemed “competent” to do so. The Competent Veterinary Dispenser Award is a simple means to ensure that non-veterinary colleagues are compliant with these regulations
- The Competent Veterinary Dispenser Award (CVD) is delivered via two online webinars which takes approximately 1.5 hours to complete.
- Delegates will be expected to answer five multiple choice questions correctly at the end of each webinar to acquire their award
