About this event

  • Date and time Fri 6 Nov 2020 from 12:30pm to 2:15pm
  • Location Online
  • Organised by Comparative Medicine

Join us to explore the difference in management of infectious diseases between the veterinary approach and the human approach. This webinar aims to help recognise that many human diseases arise in animals, and cover topics that stimulate thought on how a veterinary approach focuses primarily on a population as a whole rather than on the individual.

This webinar will be ideal for medics and vets to look at control of zoonoses with a "One Medicine" approach. Participants will be able to understand how this approach can ultimately benefit both the individual and the group.

During this session, participants will be able to:

  • Explore the different drivers for surveillance and evolutionary analyses of influenza A viruses in animals and how we assess pandemic risk
  • Understand how the cattle industry has succeeded and failed (both nationally and internationally) with compulsory and regulated disease control programmes such as FMD and TB, compared to voluntary schemes such as BVD and Johnes
  • Appreciate the lessons learned for the management of Coronavirus in the human population
  • A brief description of the virus and the family coronavirus members (mainly animal members)
  • The comparative view of the pathogenesis in respective hosts caused by these viruses and the lessons that can be learnt from them to inform knowledge on COVID-19
