The Fourth National Veterinary Conference (NVC 2016) will take place in Moscow on October 19–21, 2016.
The Conference will be held in the Congress Hall (Hall N 20) in the CROCUS-EXPO International Exhibition Centre, the ultra-modern complex with the total area of about 9,000 squire meters, which is used as a venue for most of the medical congresses in the country. Large and convenient exhibition halls, spacious area of free parking, modern conference halls and rooms all represent just a small proportion of all the advantages of this largest congress hall in Europe. In 2015, NVC was attended by 3,500 participants.
Evidence-based medicine is the process of systematically reviewing, appraising and using clinical research findings to provide the efficient and safe methods of disease diagnostics and treatment. Evidence-based practice implies the use of the best scientific evidence in the routine work of medical practitioners. There are also other advanced principles recognized in most countries, including Good Clinical Practice (GCP) standards, Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) standards applicable to manufacturing of pharmaceutical or food products (GMP), and Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) standards
To ensure dissemination of true knowledge, the Conference organizers have decided to use the principles of evidence-based medicine as guidelines in their approach to review and selection of lectures. The lecturers will also be selected based on their professional competencies, in accordance with recognized certification criteria for NVC lecturers.
Our mission is to improve professional practices in veterinary medicine.
The exhibition of the NVC should provide veterinary professionals and practices with a wide variety of opportunities of establishing business contacts and selecting necessary foods, medications, and equipment. An area of over 3,000 squire meters allocated for exhibition booths provides all market participants including medical diagnostic and therapeutic equipment trading companies with most convenient conditions for presenting relevant products and services.
We, the organizers of the Conference, are veterinary practitioners. We had chosen our profession because we have always cared for the animals and their health.
High professional level of the veterinary practitioner and availability of medications, equipment, and materials are main prerequisites of reliable diagnostic and successful treatment of medical conditions.
The Conference was designed with the aim of providing veterinarians with an access to new knowledge and achievements of the modern veterinary industry. We consider the professional level of veterinary practitioners, quality of veterinary products, and quality of our own activity to be extremely important. There are no little things in our profession, and to us, every veterinary practitioner is a person bearing a greatest moral and social responsibility. Helping each of the veterinarians, we do as much as we can to facilitate the overall progress of the Russian veterinary medicine.
