About this course

Have you experienced the range of conflicting client experience and emotions around euthanasia?

Those working in a veterinary practice deal with death on a daily basis. Many have never had any training to enable them to understand the emotions and processes their clients are experiencing, or how to communicate successfully with them during this time.

This course aims to help participants gain a deeper understanding of the impact of companion-animal loss on clients, colleagues and themselves. It also intends to equip participants with the skills needed to support and manage those affected by companion-animal loss.

Why do this course?
If you are working as part of a veterinary team and wish to increase your understanding and ability to support those going through or working alongside companion-animal loss.

The webinars will run on the following dates from 12.30pm to 2.30pm London time including a 30 minute registration and familiarisation period prior to the commencement of the lecture.

Webinar dates:
Tuesday 30th April
Tuesday 7th May
