Collecting information, development of the site and graphics and illustrations were carried out by Laurent Leinartz from the teaching support unit (ToolBox) in the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine.
For students :
The online 'Biosecurity and good veterinary practices module (VETE2031-1), part of the “Veterinary Epidemiology, risk analysis, biosecurity and good veterinary practice” course (VETE2059-1), is closely linked to this site. It follows the same structure and each course chapter refers to the corresponding part of the practical manual.
In addition to the chapter in the syllabus, the link to the section in the manual and the various additional documents, a batch of five questions (multiple choice or true/false) drawn randomly from a stock of questions, is given at the end of each chapter, giving access to the next chapter.
For members of the Faculty community and all other visitors, access to the site is mainly through the Faculty site.
