The importance of considering emotional health both in colleagues and patients in a veterinary context.

  • Carolyne Crowe BVetMed (Hons), BSc, Dip Coaching, MRCVS
  • Sarah Heath BVSc DipECAWBM(BM) CCAB MRCVS, RCVS and European Veterinary Specialist in Behavioural Medicine (Companion Animals)

This one-day course will explore the challenge of the veterinary context from a human and animal perspective. The Mind Matters initiative from the RCVS has highlighted the challenges of veterinary practice work and the need for us to be aware of the potential impact on human mental health. It is also important to remember that the veterinary context can create emotional challenges for our patients and optimising the veterinary experience necessitates an understanding of the behavioural needs of the different species that we treat. This CPD event will offer the opportunity to discuss ways in which the behavioural consequences of emotional challenge in animals can be an added pressure for veterinary staff and consider preventative behavioural medicine as a factor in ensuring a more positive working environment as well as enhancing animal welfare.
