Pitfalls in practice and how to avoid them

BVA Careers Development

Whilst a good working knowledge of both the relevant veterinary legislation and our Professional Codes of Conduct is essential, it cannot fully prepare veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses for the almost infinite range of legal, moral, ethical, or regulatory challenges they might face on a daily basis.
During this interactive session delegates will be introduced to some thought provoking scenarios and dilemmas that are regularly dealt with by the The VDS and, having selected from a range of possible responses, the audience’s anonymised answers will be discussed in open forum.
At the end of the session delegates should either be reassured about their own professional approach or feel empowered to question the established norms with which they were perhaps feeling slightly uncomfortable. At the very least they will return to their practices and view them with a fresh pair of eyes. 
Learning outcomes:
• How to approach difficult situations
• The principles of avoiding complaints
• Staying the right side of the RCVS.
