Description

The purpose of the University of Tennessee Arthritis Case Manager Course is to improve the care and quality of life of dogs with osteoarthritis by having a designated case manager to help guide treatment and communicate with the owner. Osteoarthritis is a common and significant condition; approximately 20% of all adult dogs are afflicted. This course is designed to help identify dogs with this debilitating disease earlier to allow treatment designed to improve clinical function and extend quality of life. This program embraces the multimodal treatment of arthritis and provides an evidence-based approach to treatment options. Further, this course embraces the team approach to osteoarthritis, recognizing the valuable roles of the veterinarian, veterinary technician, and owner in managing each case. In particular, veterinary technicians play a major role in managing these chronic patients for their lifetime. They interact with veterinarians and owners to be certain that patients are receiving optimal treatment and owners are informed and educated about the treatment options for their pets and receive appropriate follow-up care. Treatment compliance and appropriate care of patients are most effective when clients receive appropriate education and regular communication from their pet’s case manager. Veterinary technicians will be uniquely equipped to perform these functions upon the successful completion of this course.
