Taking the fear out of phaeo and making it all add up: nursing management of patients with adrenal gland disease

This talk will cover the anatomy and physiology of the adrenal gland to provide a better understanding of the aetiology of canine and feline adrenal gland diseases and therefore the nursing considerations. The nurse’s role in diagnosis, treatment and monitoring will be discussed for hypoadrenocorticism, hyperadrenocorticism and phaeochromocytoma.
