During this 2 day course the participants are guided by expert instructors through the traditional, as well more innovative procedures (e.g. sentinels-free approach) for health monitoring, the interpretation of results and action plans in case of confirmed infection.
The content of the course includes:
- traditional and emerging agents
- relevant international guidelines
- selection of laboratory techniques for health monitoring, including innovative techniques such as EAD-PCR, screening of incoming animals and biological samples
- control of the macro- and micro-environment
- disaster plan in case of confirmed infection
- the influence of microbiota on animal models and monitoring techniques
Simulation of health monitoring schemes will be delivered through interactive theoretical sessions; a workshop will present a hypothetical scenario, with needs and limitations, providing the participants with the opportunity to developed their own programme with the support of the trainers.
