Get involved in a research study whilst receiving FREE Online CPD!

Teamwork, as they say, makes the dream work but do you find communication with colleagues and team members doesn’t always go as smoothly as you would like? Would you like to understand more about how to communicate and co-ordinate effectively as a team, ensuring you deliver high quality, safe care and maximise job satisfaction?

Now is your chance to receive FREE online training designed to improve team communication whilst also taking part in important research to increase our understanding of team communication and provide evidence on how best to improve it.

This short, online course is aimed at ALL veterinary team members: vets, nurses, practice managers and receptionists. The course is facilitated by Elly Russell, an experienced vet and VDS trainer and will form part of her PhD researching veterinary communication. 

What's involved?

The total time commitment is around 4 hours, CPD certificates will be available.

  • A survey before and after the course
  • Two online interactive sessions
  • A work sheet exercise to help you understand challenges relevant to your practice
  • 1 to 1 interviews (again online) after the course.
