Session Descriptions The Business of Practice The ultimate success of your practice depends on much more than your clinical skills. The Business of Practice sessions at this year’s Convention will focus on the key area of communications, and will provide the blueprint for you to develop stronger bonds with your clients, market your practice to potential clients and create a stable and efficient office environment among your employees.

How-To Expand your skills repertoire during these focused sessions that walk you step-by-step through procedures that have been successfully deployed by your colleagues. At the conclusion of each presentation, you’ll be armed with the information you need to critically evaluate the technique and determine whether or not to implement it in your practice. At How-to Sessions during the 2013 Convention you will learn specific techniques in the key areas of ophthalmology, radiology, and field anesthesia and pain management.

In-Depth Dig deeper into important topics within equine veterinary medicine during In-Depth sessions. These sessions tend to feature fewer but longer presentations, enabling a thorough and comprehensive exploration of key components of the subject topic. At this year’s Convention, go in depth into the core areas of sport horse and racing-related lameness, geriatric medicine/metabolics and reproductive endocrinology.

Table Topics Enlist the knowledge and experience of your fellow practitioners to work through common challenges and identify solutions within specific areas of equine medicine during Table Topics. These facilitated discussions are informal but highly informative, and draw upon the collective expertise of everyone in attendance.

MUSIC CITY Renowned as the home of country music, Nashville has emerged as a destination beloved for its small-town charm and big-city excitement. With live music around every corner and a thriving restaurant and entertainment scene, Annual Convention attendees will quickly discover why Conde Nast hailed the city as one of the top five travel destinations in the world for 2013 and The New York Times dubbed Nashville the nation’s “it” city earlier this year.

Celebrate Country Music’s Past and Present The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is home to priceless artifacts, dynamic exhibitions, Nashville’s legendary RCA Studio B, and more. The Hall of Fame is located near the historic Ryman Auditorium, where the stars of the Grand Ole Opry perform during the Opry’s wintertime run at its famous former home. For Opry show times and tickets, visit www.opry.com.

Go Honky Tonkin’ Pull on your boots and head to the neon lights of Honky Tonk Row on Lower Broadway downtown, where live music plays all day and late into the night at Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, Second Fiddle and other iconic establishments. These clubs are a creative breeding ground for aspiring musicians and have served as the launch pad for a number of country stars, from Willie Nelson to Dierks Bentley.

Immerse Yourself in the Holiday Spirit Entering its 30th year, A Country Christmas at the Gaylord Opryland illuminates the resort in more than two million twinkling lights, with acres of stunning decorations, horsedrawn carriages and more. Other special events include the Radio City Christmas Spectacular starring the Rockettes next door at the Grand Ole Opry House.

session

Keynote Speaker Horse and Life — It’s All the Same to Me Buck Brannaman 9:00-10:00 a.m.

Sponsored by Bayer HealthCare Animal Health, Manufacturers of Prostamate™ (dinoprost tromethamine). Legendary horseman and clinician Buck Brannaman will introduce equine veterinarians to natural horsemanship concepts as a means to better understand and work with their clients’ horses during his Dec. 8 keynote address at the 59th Annual Convention. A disciple of Ray Hunt, Brannaman uses an understanding of how horses think and communicate to train even the most troubled horses to accept humans and work confidently and responsively with them. Through an engaging and enlightening mix of stories and methods, Brannaman will inspire practitioners to re-examine how they interact with their equine patients, including young and unruly horses, to achieve meaningful and satisfactory results. Brannaman’s gentle and effective methods have been developed over 30 years and imparted to countless horse owners through his books, videos and almost weekly horsemanship clinics at locations worldwide. Brannaman inspired the character “Tom Booker” in the novel and related movie The Horse Whisperer and his life’s story — overcoming a difficult childhood at the hands of an abusive father and how that relationship helped shape his horsemanship methods — is recounted in the critically acclaimed documentary Buck. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to hear from a true American treasure.

“When it comes to horses, Buck Brannaman is part guru, part psychologist, and all cowboy. He’s a 19th century man in a 21st century world, and his life is at once inspirational and instructive.” Tom Brokaw

Effective communication skills are integral to engaging with clients as partners in caring for their horses. Applying these skills improves outcomes, including time management, diagnostic accuracy, compliance, patient health, and client and veterinarian satisfaction. This interactive workshop will examine veterinarian-client relationship styles and identify effective communication skills to build strong client partnerships to enhance clinical outcomes for veterinarians, clients and patients.

MILNE lecture

Moderator: P.O. Eric Mueller

Sponsored by Platinum Performance, “Where Good Nutrition Meets Good Medicine.” World-renowned in equine orthopaedics, Dr. Dyson will furnish the advanced knowledge necessary for practitioners to efficiently diagnose lameness when she delivers the honorary Milne Lecture. Dr. Dyson’s lecture will focus on three key areas: the recognition of lameness; new knowledge about the limitations of diagnostic analgesia; and the value of MRI in diagnosing foot-related lameness. Currently the head of equine clinical orthopaedics in the Centre for Equine Studies at the Animal Health Trust in Newmarket, England, Dr. Dyson has a particular interest in lameness and poor performance in sports horses, with additional expertise in diagnostic imaging, including radiography, ultrasonography, scintigraphy and magnetic resonance imaging. She has lectured internationally and published more than 200 refereed papers in scientific journals relating to lameness and diagnostic imaging in the horse. Dr. Dyson is co-editor and major author of Diagnosis and Management of Lameness in the Horse, Equine Scintigraphy and Clinical Radiology of the Horse.

Dr. Dyson is coeditor and major author of Diagnosis and Management of Lameness in the Horse, Equine Scintigraphy and Clinical Radiology of the Horse.

Dr. Dyson qualified from the University of Cambridge in 1980 with a degree in veterinary medicine, and completed an internship in large animal medicine and surgery at the University of Pennsylvania’s New Bolton Center. She holds a diploma in equine orthopaedics from the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons and was awarded a Ph.D. by the University of Helsinki. Among her honors and awards are the British Equine Veterinary Association John Hickman Orthopaedic Award in 2000 for outstanding contributions to equine orthopaedics; the Tierklinik Hochmoor award in 2007 for outstanding, innovative and lasting contributions to equine veterinary medicine worldwide; and induction into the International Equine Veterinarians Hall of Fame in 2013 for her contributions to foot-related research. The Frank J. Milne Lecture debuted at the 1997 Convention in Phoenix, Ariz. Named for AAEP past president and distinguished life member Frank J. Milne, the lecture series features state-of-the-art information on subjects and techniques considered important by the equine veterinary profession.

Good working relationships, the kind that foster trust and frankness, do not happen by chance, they happen by design.

Participants will learn crucial leadership rights and responsibilities, how to talk to each other rather than about each other when issues arise, relationship management behaviors that impact morale and productivity, fact checking for greater clarity, listening without defensiveness, giving feedback in ways that others can take it, and creating a work culture where success is the norm.

During the three-hour break between sessions, grab lunch inside the Trade Show and check out what our 300 exhibitors have to offer your practice.
