Dr. Lauren Forsythe will present Keeping Controlled Substances Under Control. 12:30 to 1:30 pm

Controlled substance regulations are essential to comply with, but it is often difficult to determine from reading the regulations how to put them into practice in a feasible manner. This session will go over what the basic regulations are and ideas of how to comply with them. Various ideas for different types of practice will be provided.

Dr. Kate Boatright will present the next 3 topics starting with Emergency Stabilization for the General Practitioner  1:30 to 2:30 pm

In a post-pandemic world, the veterinary community is overwhelmed with cases. With

emergency clinics being forced to turn patients away, general practitioners will likely be playing

a bigger role in initial emergency assessment and stabilization. This presentation will review

common emergency presentations to the veterinary hospital including blocked cats, trauma,

and foreign bodies. Initial evaluation and stabilization that should be performed by the general

practitioner prior to transfer to an emergency clinic, key points for client communication, and

tips to smooth the transfer process will be a focus of the lecture.

Break 2:30 to 2:45 pm

Building Your Wellness Toolbox  2:45 to 3:45 pm

How do you thrive in your veterinary career for 5, 10, or 50 years? You learn to make self-care a

priority! This interactive lecture will begin with a brief review of the state of mental health in

the veterinary profession. A discussion of recognizing burnout and tools for recovery will follow

using Dr. Boatright’s personal walk through professional burnout. We will also discuss specific

skills that you can cultivate to protect your own wellbeing and that of your team—boundaries

and resiliency.

Tales from the Trenches: Working Within Client Financial Limits  3:45 to 4:45 pm

Working within client financial limits is one of the biggest stressors that veterinarians face in

practice. In school, students are taught the gold standard of diagnosis and treatment. After

graduation, away from the ivory tower, veterinarians are often faced with balancing tighter

financial limitations of clients with the best interest of the pet. There are often flexible ways to

get the information we want and need for a patient while still working within a client’s means

by embracing the concepts of spectrum of care and incremental care. Using case-based

examples, we will explore these concepts as well as communication tips to ease the stress of

financial conversations.
