Seminar #4: Conducting Effective Outbreak Investigations: Learning from Our Mistakes, Part II
Seminar chair: Derald Holtkamp

Want to help producers learn from outbreaks of endemic diseases like PRRS and PED, and become better prepared for transboundary diseases like ASF? This seminar will introduce participants to concepts and resources to efficiently and comprehensively conduct epidemiological investigations of outbreaks in swine herds for the purpose of identifying where herds are most vulnerable to the introduction of pathogens. If you attended last year’s seminar by the same name, you will find it worth attending again, as this year’s seminar is more focused on the application of the concepts. The seminar will offer several examples of approaches and tools, including outbreak investigations, used to prioritize where biosecurity improvements are needed on individual farms and in larger production systems.

Participants will be introduced to resources (forms, examples, training videos, etc) available online through the Swine Health Information Center’s (SHIC) Rapid Response Program (RRP) for conducting epidemiological investigations of outbreaks. The seminar will provide participants in SHICS’s RRP with additional training to prepare them to conduct investigations in response to a new transboundary or emerging swine disease in the US. All participants will learn how to use the program materials in their practice or production system to conduct more effective epidemiological investigations of endemic disease (eg, PRRS or PED) outbreaks.

Seminar #5: #ImNewAtThis
Seminar chair: Shamus Brown

The target audience for this seminar is recent veterinary graduates (0-3 years post-graduation) and veterinary students. The objective is to provide an introductory overview to five topics (outside of “bugs and drugs”) that tend to be areas of interest and potential struggle for new veterinarians in the profession.

Seminar #7: Pigs Are Easy; People Are Hard
Seminar chair: Ross Kiehne

It often happens that we neglect the people side of swine veterinary medicine. We do a great job with the pigs and a less-than-stellar job with the people. This includes not selling our ideas enough, not showing leadership to get the job done, not recognizing how we communicate to get the best effectiveness, and lastly, not always recognizing the stress in colleagues’ and clients’ lives. This seminar will attempt to help us in each of these areas.

Seminar #10: Swine Medicine for Students
Seminar co-chairs: Jeremy Pittman and Angela Supple

This session is designed to be a supplement to veterinary students’ education at their respective schools on topics of swine medicine. This year’s topic will focus on diagnostics. A practitioner will explain collecting the proper samples and sample types based on clinical presentation on the farm. Following this, a diagnostician will present what happens to those samples once they are at the lab, the basics of diagnostic tests, and interpretation of the results. Following these reviews, students will participate in several interactive cases where they will use their new knowledge to make diagnostic decisions for some real-world cases.
