The following is a partial transcript of the video.
Erica Brandt, CVT, VTS (ECC): What I'm hoping for at this conference—it's so unique, it's different anything I've ever done. And I think the overall goal of us presenting in this fashion, is to really show the collaboration and teamwork and different points of view for similar cases. And so my point of view as a technician and what I really want to bring across [is that], as a technician, how I can be a part of that team. When it comes to post-operative care and pain management, my job or my contribution to that is really getting to know my patient.
