Recently, there has been increased attention on compassion fatigue and wellness in the veterinary community. Perhaps you’ve read an article, attended a conference session or reviewed research  that underscores the importance of providing care to those who provide care. In this presentation,  Dr. Carrie Jurney, Secretary of the Board, Not One More Vet, Inc. (NOMV), a veterinary support group, discusses the origins of veterinary wellbeing problems (for all staff members) and what the profession can do to address them. Dr. Jurney  will take participants through the evolution of the problems. Understanding  the origin of each problem will help to craft solutions. Integral to this conversations is a discussion of strategies to build veterinary practices that are supportive environments for clients, patients and staff.

Guest presenter: Carrie Jurney, DVM, DACVIM (Neurology)
Carrie likes to refer to herself as a "tragic extrovert." She brings enthusiasm to anything that she takes on. As a passionate speaker about mental health, she brings this energy and humor to what otherwise can be a rather challenging and somber topic. Because of her work as the Director of Forum Moderators for the board of Not One More Vet, Inc. (NOMV), she's sought extensive continuing education in crisis counseling and suicide prevention. She brings this knowledge, and her experience doing peer-to-peer interventions with members of our group, to her lectures. When she's not managing the day-to-day activities of the NOMV forum, she is a practicing veterinary neurologist, wife to Chris and zoo keeper of three rambunctious cats.
