Lecture summary

Lindsey Ashburner
I am an Emergency and Critical Care Veterinary Nurse at the Edinburgh University Hospital for Small Animals.

I first qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in 2012 and started my career at a mixed practice. It was here that I found my passion for ECC and achieved the VetsNow certificate in emergency and critical care. In 2015 I started working at the Edinburgh University as a dedicated ECC nurse in the busy ICU department.

A big aspect of my job working for the University is teaching veterinary students. To improve my teaching abilities, I completed The Edinburgh Teaching Award – Associate Fellow. I use my teaching skills to teach veterinary students, veterinary interns, residents, and fellow veterinary nurses.

In 2017 I was awarded a scholarship from Edinburgh University which enabled me to complete my Vet Tech Specialist(ECC) qualification which I obtained in 2019. Included in the scholarship was the opportunity to undertake several externships to gain experience of other ERs/ICUs in both the USA and UK and attend ECC specific CE events including the European and International Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Congresses.

In my spare time I enjoy running and hill walking with my husband and very energetic dog Fara. I also have two cats who rule the roost in our house.
