Webinar: (2021-11) More Meaningful Metrics to Assess Animal Program Quality and Effectiveness: A Review and Extension


At IACUC21, Susan Harper, DVM, MS, DACLAM, DACVPM, RBP (ABSA) and Diana Li, BS, CPIA, RLATG led a well-attended session exploring objective performance metrics that can be collected and compared to measure and assess the IACUC's effectiveness over time and in comparison to other relevant benchmarks.

The data can be used to identify specific areas where resources and effort should be strategically invested to make the greatest impact on animal welfare objectives and further improve the quality and integrity of the program.

In this session, a review (the rebroadcast of select clips from IACUC21) and extension of the popular session, the speakers will offer concrete examples of the application of these meaningful metrics. There will also be time reserved at the end of the session for Q&A with the speakers.
