Topic: Compassion Fatigue for Veterinary Professionals: Recognizing the Signs | Dr. Page Yaxley, MSU College of Veterinary Medicine
Dr. Yaxley will bring forward the discussion of compassion fatigue in our profession. It’s an important topic for all of us to hear and one that is not discussed openly amongst our colleagues. We pet puppies and kittens all day, right? How can that be worrisome? We really owe it to ourselves and to our colleagues to learn the signs of Compassion Fatigue so that we can watch for challenges in ourselves and also in our friends. Bring a buddy to this meeting – it’s important.
In addition, Dr. Yaxley will discuss the new Pet Hospice Program that is starting at MSU. Here’s a quote from their website:
The MSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital now offers Veterinary Hospice Care in an effort to provide the “missing link” between terminal diagnosis and euthanasia. Veterinary Hospice Care provides in-home, veterinary-supported palliative care to pets so they can maintain a good quality of life and live comfortably until natural death or euthanasia occurs.
Veterinary technicians and other support staff are also invited!!!
See you at this important and informative meeting!
