Cost of Care and Economic Limitations: The Impact on Animal Welfare and Your Career Satisfaction is an open-enrollment, self-study course is based on the archive of a MightyVet webinar presented on June 13, 2017.
Both the webinar and this archive course were made available to the veterinary community via the financial and administrative donation of VetMedTeam. We believe in the MightyVet initiative.
This course is based on the archive of the webinar and is appropriate for veterinarians, credentialed technicians, and practice team members, along with vet and tech school students.
Upon completion of the course, the student will be able to discuss:
- the frequency and degree to which the economic limitations of pet owners influence quality of veterinary care and how this can affect professional career satisfaction
- the most common resources used to address this problem and their impact on care
- the extent to which veterinarians are informing and educating pet owners regarding costs of care and payment options before patient illness occurs
- the obstacles to veterinarian compliance in educating clients on this topic
