Course Focus and Learning Objectives

VetCE on Demand: Embracing all Interdisciplinary Team Members in the Delivery of Pet Hospice Care This self-study course utilizes the archive of a live presentation under the same name.

The veterinary team consists of trained, purpose-driven individuals, delivering end-of-life care with compassion. Their roles and duties in serving geriatric and terminally ill patients may be defined and enhanced. Now, let’s consider the many professionals beyond the veterinary hospital walls supporting pet hospice and family caregiving. This course examines the components of an interdisciplinary team, including skill assessment and how to best leverage the team.

Learning Objectives:

At the end of the course participants should be able to:

  • outline veterinary team duties in the delivery of end-of-life care
  • identify professionals on the interdisciplinary team
  • list resources in pet hospice guidelines
