One of the greatest positives of the course for me was reading the forum posts and seeing my experiences reflected in other delegates’ posts, and not feeling that these are only my problems.

About this course

Do you want to focus on solutions to stress and burnout in practice and learn how to thrive?

We all recognise that veterinary medicine has become plagued with mental health and wellness concerns including high rates of psychological distress and depression that exceed those of the general population. In light of these factors and the demands of the profession, we must focus on how we can manage the stressors of veterinary practice and still have a sustainable career and balanced life.

These sessions will cover mental health, moral stress, burnout, and compassion fatigue, as well as practical and tangible strategies that all veterinary care providers can adopt on a routine basis to foster wellness and sustain resilience despite the demands of veterinary practice.

Week One: Mental health and wellbeing of veterinary care providers: from perfectionism to burnout and beyond

Week Two: Practicing veterinary medicine mindfully and its impact on the veterinary team

Week Three: Self-care for the team: the key to surviving in veterinary practice

Week Four: Strategies for sanity: sleep hygiene, setting boundaries, saying no, and separating work from home life

Why do this course? 
You will come away from this course with an understanding of the stressors and wellbeing concerns that veterinary care providers face, the suspected contributing factors, and self-assessment tools for recognising perfectionism, burnout, and compassion fatigue. You will also learn practical tools for thriving in veterinary practice that can be immediately implemented during and after the course.
