Attendees are encouraged to review the background material on the topic that will be available on the conference website before the meeting. During this session, faculty and attendees will:

  • Explore the use of observation to optimize animal welfare
  • Outline strategies for evaluating the concerns that pain management medications will be incompatible with proposed animal experiments
