5.5 – HOW TO: Build Resilience & Support Members through Tough Times
2:10 pm - 2:40 pm
This session is led by Elle Bullimore, Head of Membership & Marketing at the British Small Animal Vets Association (BSAVA) which is the professional body for vets that work with small animals. Managing stress is part of the job for vets. Long hours, high intensity work and emotionally charged situations are all part of the daily routine. As a professional body serving a membership facing high instances of mental health problems, as well as worrying trends of vets leaving the profession, dealing with these issues has to be high on the agenda too. This session will focus on building resilience for members and has the following learning outcomes:
- How BSAVA are supporting wellbeing and helping members through tough times;
- How to develop emotional resilience and build support networks;
- Why wellbeing is an important CPD topic.
