DESCRIPTION:  The Workshop will address processes whereby

Institutional Animal Care and Use Committees (IACUC) can effectively

evaluate their institution's animal care and use program.  The PHS

Animal Welfare Policy and USDA Regulations state that at least once

every six months the institution's program for humane care and use of

animals is to be evaluated by the IACUC using the Guide and USDA

Regulations (Title 9, Chapter 1, subchapter A-Animal Welfare) as a

basis.  Topics to be included in the Workshop include:  A review of

the program as described in the Guide; institutional policy issues

such as the occupational health and safety program, personnel

training, and the activities of the IACUC and how effectively does it

meet its mandates.  Other program issues to be included are

veterinary care, the animal environment, and record reviews.  Reports

of the IACUC semiannual program and facility reviews will also be

discussed.  Approaches useful to IACUC's serving both small and large

institutions will be included.
