PAWES course

I have organised to do the UWA PAWES course on Thursday and Friday. PAWES stands for Programme in Animal Welfare, Ethics and Science.

According to the website it covers things like State and Federal legislative and regulatory requirements, The Australian code of practice for the care and use of animals for scientific purposes (7th edition, 2004), The UWA Animal Ethics Committee and its operations, applications, reporting processes and policies, Ethics and animal use, Alternatives to animal experimentation, Experimental design, Anaesthesia and analgesia, Animal house and its operations, Health, safety and animal use, Euthanasia, Restraint of the common laboratory animal species, Minor procedures on common laboratory animal species, Recognition of pain and distress, and Post-mortem and disposal — all in 11 hours.

I hope it is useful to the project.
