Special event for Animal Medical Center of Seattle: Dr Carrie Jurney
It’s hard to go anywhere in vet med these days without hearing about problems relating to wellness, mental health, and even suicide, but what is really happening? This lecture looks at both veterinary personality types and tendencies as individuals, as well as workplace stressors common in veterinary medicine. For each topic, we will explore the literature surrounding mental wellness and veterinary stressors, with an eye to finding real world solutions to these problems.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn common personality traits of veterinarians, as well as how these might impact job stress and compensating techniques.
2. Discuss psychologic distress versus wellbeing problems in veterinary medicine.
3. Examine stigmas and hurdles to seeking mental healthcare in our profession, in addition to solutions.
4. Discuss elevated suicide rates and possible solutions, including crisis training and limiting access to controlled substances.
5. Understand workplace and organizational stressors common in veterinary medicine, with potential solutions.
