SESC third training session for slaughterhouse veterinarians

On Friday May 20, the "SESC 2016 training session for Slaughterhouse veterinarians" was held in the Hall of the Faculty of Veterinary UAB. It is already the third edition of this event organized from SESC, the Slaughterhouse support network. SESC is an initiative of the Public Health Agency of the Government of Catalonia (ASPCAT) carried out by IRTA-CReSA. SESC allows official meat inspectors to submit their enquiries when they are faced with diagnostic challenges.

During the session, Dr. Mariano Domingo discussed the dual goal of meat inspection in slaughterhouses regarding public health and animal health. Then the activities carried out at IRTA-CReSA tracking cysticercosis were discussed, in the context of Cystinet a network for the study of cysticercosis and taeniasis organized through a COST action in which CReSA researcher Minerva Laranjo is involved.

Then Dr. Roser Velarde, from SEFaS, reviewed the most relevant diseases with which meat inspectors might come across in game meat processing establishments.

After a pause, the activities carried out by the SESC during the year 2015 were reviewed and, finally, an interactive practical cases discussion session was held with the participation of Dr. Joaquim Segalés and Dr. Enric Vidal.

The event featured 60 participants that evaluated the session positively (8.6 over 10 on the satisfaction survey).
