Given the changing dynamics of interacting and communicating with clients, this presentation discusses how to create a more positive and fruitful interaction for all. As the human animal bond has become more crucial and precious in people’s lives due to limited social interactions, its potential loss and even temporary separation create fear, anxiety, and stress in owners. We will discuss the biology/psychology of fear, anxiety and stress, how to understand it and alleviate it for better outcomes for all involved – pet, owner, and veterinary team.

Trying to shift or change a practice culture is a long, arduous process, but worth the energy and effort to build a more resilient profession. Not only does this improve retention, it also improves morale and diminishes workplace burnout. This workshop will cover the top models for organizational culture change, how to incorporate multiple stakeholder needs, and navigating barriers to change such as; closed attitudes, counterproductive change dynamics, and lack of expertise. Participants will leave with an awareness and an intellectual framework to think more critically about how to achieve a culture of wellbeing in their practices and build more collective resilience in veterinary medicine.
