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).

5 things that every role in veterinary practice needs to know

Every veterinary practice needs to achieve 4 outcomes:

  • Good clinical outcomes
  • Good client satisfaction outcomes
  • Good financial outcomes
  • Good team outcomes

Each of the 4 roles (vets, nurses, receptionists and management) within practice needs to contribute to these outcomes in different ways.

This session will look at 5 things that every role in veterinary practice needs to know and do in order for this to happen.

Please note: this webinar originally took place as a live event on Thursday 14th January 2021.

Getting off on the right foot in your first job

Brian still remembers his first day in practice 26 years ago! However, he wishes he had known some very simple tactics that he uses every species, every consultation, every time nowadays, that would have helped him cope with the inevitable uncertainty that we all experience in veterinary practice. 
The key to safe practice is the ability to manage this uncertainty but without coming across as too unsure - or too confident! In this webinar he will share some very simple communication tactics on how to do this.
