Company

RCVS Knowledge is the independent charity associated with the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS). Our ambition is to become a global intermediary for evidence based veterinary knowledge by providing access to information that is of immediate value to practising veterinary professionals and directly contributes to evidence based clinical decision-making.

Our vision is to become the global intermediary for evidence based veterinary knowledge. We will do this by providing a 3-fold service to the profession: the Historical Collection - by providing historical knowledge about where the profession has come from, it’s triumphs and achievements, and the pathway through which it has achieved its current position in society; the Library and Information Service - by providing an information service built on current scientific and technical knowledge of direct use to the practising vet and veterinary nurse; the Evidence Based Veterinary Medicine (EBVM) project - by working with a wide network of interested people, seeking and assembling new knowledge, packaged to provide a must-have resource for the veterinary profession, built on the principles of “Evidence Based” theory. These three themes will be underpinned and facilitated by a grants and awards programme that both celebrates achievement, and builds new knowledge that will contribute to the EBVM and other projects.
