Photobiomodulation (LASER) Therapy for Animals
This 12 hour CPD is delivered online and can be taken at your own pace!
Who is this course for?
If you are a therapist, nurse or vet who wants to learn about LASER for animals (or photobiomodulation as it is now known) in more depth then this course is for you! Whether you:
Have no experience of using photobiomodulation/laser but are interested in learning what it is all about
Have experience using photobiomodulation/laser but want to go more in depth on the science of how it works and how it should be used in practice
Our bitesize CPD explains and compares the different types of photobiomodulation (PBM) devices, walks you through how PBM works and when it is (and is not) indicated for animals
As well as being a stand alone course, this course is part of a new EPA series, which builds towards a Certificate in Electrophysical Agents! Throughout 2022 there will be regular releases of the next courses if you decide you want to work towards the full Certificate.
What our students have to say.....
Your Tutor Katie Lawrence Says...............
I am a published author in this subject and have specialised in EPA’s for many years; teaching the subject to a wide variety of students in the vocational and university setting. The feedback from my students is always that my way of teaching makes sense of this complex subject and how it applies to practice.
Many of the courses available on EPA’s are delivered by the manufacturers of the equipment which can lead to some questions of bias. I have no allegiance to any of the manufacturers so I can provide an unbiased and evidence based account of exactly what PBM or LASER can and cannot do!
