The Veterinary Rollercoaster
Learn how to build resilience in 30 days
Working in veterinary practice can sometimes feel like a rollercoaster ride. Some days are full of obliging patients, satisfied clients and medical breakthroughs, whereas others… not so much.
Veterinary staff, as with many healthcare professionals, face occupational health risks such as compassion fatigue and burnout. As a veterinary professional you likely know it’s important to protect your physical and mental health, but you may struggle with how to achieve this on a daily basis.
This course gives you the ability to build practical, effective, evidence-based strategies to ‘put your own oxygen mask on first’. The course is relevant for anyone working in a veterinary environment (clinical and non-clinical), and is suitable for an international audience.
Although designed to support you over 30 days, the course is entirely self-paced; you can engage with the learning materials at your own speed. Learning is supported through live webinars (which are recorded and can be viewed at a later date), bite-size videos, selected readings, discussions, and reflective work. This course takes 6 hours to complete and a certificate of participation will be provided at the end.
Key topics covered in the course include:
- What do we mean by resilience and why is it important?
- What no-one tells you about work-life balance
- Embracing the positive aspects of veterinary practice
- ‘Ordinary magic’ - how do we learn more about our innate resilience skills?
- The protective and vulnerability factors for resilience
- Imposter syndrome and its impact on veterinary staff
- Ten of the most effective tactics to build happiness in the workplace
The course will launch in May 2017 - to pre-register, use the enroll button above. If you have any questions, please contact us at [email protected]
