The 3Hs CPD Course

The 3Hs Quiz serves as a pivotal assessment within the course dedicated to enhancing rodent welfare in laboratory settings. It encompasses three fundamental aspects – Housing, Handling, and Habituation (the 3Hs) – crucial for promoting the well-being of research rodents.

Through questions addressing optimal housing conditions, proper handling techniques to minimise stress, and strategies for habituating rodents to their environment and protocols, the quiz evaluates practitioner's comprehension and application of essential principles. From understanding the importance of cage enrichment and cleanliness to mastering gentle handling practices and promoting behavioural flexibility through habituation, the quiz aims to equip technicians with the knowledge and skills necessary to create environments where rodents can thrive while ensuring the integrity and reliability of scientific research.
