Radical Self-Care for Veterinary Teams: Best Practices in a Stressful Career

 

Each year, more and more research is published on the prevalence of compassion fatigue and burnout in the veterinary field. For many of us, this empirical evidence validates our personal experiences and acknowledges the unique stressors of this field. But, so often we are stuck at the question of “what’s next?” The idea of self-care is nothing new, and at times the prescriptions for stress-management sound like a broken record. It’s time to look at self-care in a new, realistic, and radical way and learn how to take care of ourselves so that we’re in it for the long haul. This discussion includes ideas for how to make fundamental changes to how you approach self-care so that it isn’t just another item on your to-do list, but rather a transformative and sustainable approach to your work.

 

This event is worth 1 CE credit.
