Beyond Burnout: Mental Health in the Veterinary Team
Date and Time
OVC Lifetime Learning Centre (LLC), Room 1713
Burnout is among the most widely-studied of occupational mental health outcomes, but is it the one that impacts the veterinary team the most? Jen Perret, a veterinarian and current PhD Candidate in the Population Medicine department, will present the latest findings on mental health in veterinarians and the veterinary team. Research into compassion fatigue, ethical conflict, and resilience provide new insights into the stressors that affect the profession, and potentially, a way forward.
Jen Perret is a 2009 DVM graduate from the Ontario Veterinary College and a PhD candidate in the Department of Population Medicine.
