Immune Mediated Disease: On Demand
6 months access
Fully flexible delivery

Certificate on completion
The immune system can be harnessed for healing or it can work very, very hard against us. Add to that: the treatment for immune mediated disease can be risky in the face of comorbidities or if the diagnosis is not correct.
How do clinicians tease out the details?
This online course offers an update on immune-mediated disease in small animals, and shares clinical pearls for the use of immunomodulatory medications, either alone or in combination.
Immune mediated disease in general practice
- Investigating non-specific clinical signs
- Assessing the right time for immunomodulatory drugs
- Prednisolone vs everything else
- IMHA & IMTP aren’t the only culprits
- Cases where immune mediated disease isn’t the whole problem
Immune mediated disease through flexible learning
Join internal medicine specialist Dr Luke Johnston as he dissects immune mediated disease for the general practitioner. This highly visual and animated course covers diagnosis and common presentations, management and monitoring of immunosuppressive therapies, and how to tease out complex cases.

Module 1 – Immune mediated blood disorders, part one
Immune mediated haemolytic anaemia may be reasonably common, but that doesn’t mean diagnosis is a cinch. Use this module to update yourself on the features of IMHA and reacquaint yourself with the diagnostic process. Get the most out of blood smears and other tests to increase your diagnostic accuracy.
Module 2 – Immune mediated blood disorders, part two
Initiating immunosuppressive therapy can be daunting. In this module, therapy options for IMHA are reviewed, and the impact of IMTP is discussed. Pick up some great clinical pearls from Dr Johnston and finesse your approach to combination therapy for immune-mediated haematological disorders.
Module 3 – Immune mediated conditions of the musculoskeletal and neurological systems
Immune-mediated disorders in this category can present with pathognomonic features – or a complete lack of them. This module presents one hypersensitivity and several systemic inflammatory diseases with a musculoskeletal or neurological flavour. For immersion in IMPA, SRMA, and MUO, this module is the place to be.
Module 4 – Infectious disease and its relationship to immune mediated disease
Infectious organisms can mimic immune mediated disease or even spark an immune cascade. These include familiar organisms like Babesia, Mycoplasma, Leptospira, and Anaplasma, and other new arrivals like Ehrlichia. Reaching for immunosuppressives in the face of infectious disease isn’t a comfortable choice, so this module offers insight and guidance.
Module 5 – Immunological oddities
Hoofbeats? This time, don’t blame the horses. Explore some immunological zebras in this module including unique malfunctions of the immune system and some new, lesser-known conditions which have a growing importance.

Your Questions Answered
What is “On Demand”?
We created the On Demand series because you asked us for longer course access. The veterinary industry can throw busy times at us, and we received more and more requests from individuals who needed more time to complete their online courses. We think 6 months is the sweet spot – you have plenty of time to work through your CPD, and we can regularly review and update the content to make sure the course stays relevant. You can revisit the materials as often as you wish.
How and when do I access learning materials?
We use a one-stop learning platform for our web-based courses. It’s intuitive, simple and easy to navigate, and we’ll email login details to you as soon as your purchase is confirmed. You can access notes, recordings and resources any time of day or night via your personalised course library. You don’t have to watch a whole video in one sitting, and you’re in complete control.
How long is course access open?
24/7 access is available for 6 months via your course library, starting on your purchase date. For example, if you sign up on July 1st, your access will be open until January 1st the following year. We’ve chosen 6 months because veterinary medicine moves fast and our goal is to provide up to date learning materials to the VetPrac community. The education team will assess, review and update the course at the end of the subscription period. This way, we know we’re offering only current and relevant information.

What kind of learning materials are included?
Is there learning support available?
Are there assessments to complete?
Will I get CPD points and a CPD certificate?
You certainly can! Each registration you will receive a CPD certificate with your points. All you need to do is complete the quiz questions at the end of the course. We’ll generate your certificate and email it to you.
