As part of a series called Frontiers for Young Minds, Paulin Jirkof has written an educational resource for kids about refined mouse handling called Refining Research to Improve the Lives of Laboratory Mice.
A research article published in PLOS ONE which included an international online survey targeting individuals that work with and/or conduct research using laboratory mice. The survey aimed to identify the handling methods currently being used, and to determine common obstacles that may be preventing the wider uptake of non-aversive handling.
In this NC3Rs blog post, the University of Glasgow’s Named Training and Competency Officer shares her experience of implementing refined mouse handling across the institution.
Senior Newcastle University Animal Care Technician Emma Hamilton has written an article on the development of 'non-aversive' handling (NAH) at Newcastle University which was recently published in the IAT Journal 'Animal Technology and Welfare'.
