Debbie Martin, RVT, CPDT-KA, KPA CTP, VTS (Behavior): “Developing the Fear Free Plan of Action for Patient Care”
Many of the procedures we need to perform on our canine and feline patients are uncomfortable and unpleasant. There is no one technique or method that will work with every patient. You will become familiar with Fear Free concepts such as considerate approach, gentle control, and the touch gradient. Through case examples and discussion, discover how to adapt and implement Fear Free techniques for each individual patient and procedure. You will be ready to start creating your Fear Free plan of action with your next patient! Objectives include:
- Recognize signs of a relaxed and stressed cat and dog.
- Define the concepts considerate approach, gentle control, and touch gradient
- Apply a Fear Free plan of action to case examples
Louise Dunn: “Practical, Proven Ways to Get Fear Free Planted, Growing, and Blooming in Your Practice”
Learning about new treatments and new ideas in patient care is a key trait that drives many of us in the veterinary industry. Planting the seeds of these new ideas is easy. However, implementing them can be difficult – often resulting in no growth or poor growth. Taking a seed to a full plant requires attention, watering, and fertilizing – and the same applies to a new idea. Moving an idea from theory to practice requires attention to designing, developing, training, and monitoring. Learn the easy steps to take you from the conference room to the exam room.
