Continued efforts to improve working conditions and management practices in the profession have led to the BVA offering new management seminars on “Getting the most out of your veterinary practice team” and “Getting the most out of your job”.

Both courses include a mental wellbeing element and both offer advice on contracts of employment and employment law.

Professor Bill ReillyThe practice team seminar (April 22) also looks at management and communication techniques to help prevent stress, distress, anger and conflict. This course teaches managers skills which can help improve the mental health of the whole practice team.

The second seminar and workshop (April 23) is aimed at giving junior vets a solid background in their legal rights. It also shows skills and techniques for taking control of their veterinary career and how to perform well under pressure to help achieve and maintain good mental health.

Held at the BVA’s headquarters in London each seminar costs £150 + VAT for BVA members and £190 + VAT for non-members with an additional 15 per cent discount when booking for two or more staff. To find out more visit www.bva.co.uk/seminars 

Introducing the seminars, BVA president Bill Reilly said: “Veterinary training is all about dealing with animals rather than learning soft skills needed for human interactions such as managing people and resolving conflict. Learning such soft skills and having the tools to improve your interaction with your team can have a huge impact on your own wellbeing at work. It may kick-start a positive attitude which could help the team around you too.

“The BVA is working hard to improve employment conditions in the profession and adding these excellent seminars to our existing range of support measures should help improve the mental wellbeing of the profession and that of the whole practice team.”
