Managing Bereavement and End of Life Care
BRAND NEW COURSE!
Contributors: Suzen Gregersen, The Hospice Vet & Doug Muir, Compassion Understood
80% of pets will make their final visit to the vets for euthanasia and for many pet owners it is the only clinical procedure they will witness and one they will remember for the rest of their lives. It is not only an emotional experience for owners, but also for the whole team from reception to nurse to vet.
Suzen Gregersen has been leading a movement to better end of life and palliative care for many years and she makes the business and welfare case, also for the vet team, for starting and preparing this process earlier in the pet’s life with planned management of terminal disease and old age as well as preparing the final highly emotional consultation for the best possible, most consistent outcome.
Doug Muir will be discussing how to embrace the whole bereavement aspect of helping your clients have a better journey through the stages of loss and how the whole veterinary team can support this journey.
Applying the combined knowledge base and proven skill set, will ensure the whole practice team is competent and confident in helping owners in the final stages of showing how you will reap the benefits both in repeat business from grateful clients when they get a new pet and from reduced staff emotional fatigue.
Who will benefit: Vets, Nurses, Practice Managers and Head Receptionists involved in planning or implementing bereavement and end of life management policies
