Talks and Lectures

Marcia Fletcher is recognised in New Zealand and internationally as a thought leader and speaker on veterinary anaesthesia.

Often the veterinary technician or nurse is the main person looking after a patient’s anaesthesia. Vets are often left managing a difficult surgery as well as anaesthetic complications.  Anaesthesia can be stressful, especially when our patient isn’t stable or hasn’t “read the textbook”. 


By attending my lectures, all veterinary professionals will gain vital knowledge of anaesthesia, and will be better prepared for the anaesthesia period, including for any complications.


I see my role as one of leadership, where I can support and empower the whole veterinary team while they are gaining confidence in veterinary anaesthesia.
