Topic: Balancing animal well-being with the needs of research projects can be challenging with some animal models. Do you know how to assess pain and distress? Or evaluate the use and appropriateness of humane endpoints? Are research personnel adequately trained to recognize these signs? In this webinar, Debra Hickman from Indiana University will provide foundational information from current literature to assist veterinary and research personnel in the development and implementation of study appropriate humane endpoints.
