Getting started with Teleconsulting in Veterinary practice

Whilst the weaknesses and limitations of teleconsulting might be obvious, experience during COVID has enhanced our awareness of the benefits and the opportunities with this mode of communication – as long as we use it appropriately.  However, many practitioners remain hesitant to adopt telemedicine due to uncertainty about four themes:

  1. Uncertainty with respect to how regulation applies to teleconsulting.
  2. Uncertainty about how to use the technology itself.
  3. Uncertainty about how to integrate telemedicine into the logistics of the operations.
  4. Uncertainty about charging.

5 things relating to mental health that everyone in veterinary practice should know

Whilst veterinary practice is often a thrilling and enjoyable environment to work in, it is also an emotionally unsettling environment. This is because delivering veterinary service and care incorporates many of the themes that lead to unsettled emotional weather, a state otherwise known as dysphoria. Like unsettled weather patterns, feelings of dysphoria are inevitable – and indeed beneficial – at least to some degree. Similarly, they can pass quickly or hang around for longer than is comfortable and even become as established as an adverse climate of compromised mental health.

This webinar is kindly sponsored by Boehringer Ingelheim and took place live in May 2021 in support of Mental Health Awareness Week (10-16th May).

The psychology of 'Having a quiet word' with misbehaving colleagues

This course is relevant to anyone who finds the ‘people-management’ part of veterinary practice uncomfortable.
Many managers tolerate unexpected or undesired colleague behaviour for too long and allow molehills to turn into mountains which could have been resolved by ‘Having a quiet word’ earlier. At the same time we don’t want to jump down people’s throat’s for every misdemeanour; the challenge is to deal with issues proportionally – and informally.
The webinars will look at how we can prevent frustrating behaviour using many of the day-to-day management processes that represent a 'soft' approach to learning and development. We will also cover why various personality types are better at having – and receiving - a quiet word if needed. We will look at how to have a difficult conversation but in a constructive manner and how to decide if, when, and how to escalate your approach to a more formal disciplinary process.

Price: £49.00 + VAT

This course represents 3.5 hours of CPD. A certificate is available to download upon completion.
