PVESC CONTINUING EDUCATION DINNER EVENT
MONDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 2021
INVITATION AND REGISTRATION FORMS WILL BE POSTED SOON!

Join us November 8th for this dinner/lecture event. The complete blood count (CBC) is a common diagnostic test; however, many times it is not included in the minimum database.  This seminar will provide a rapid overview of the CBC, emphasizing what information is lost when it’s not included in screening healthy animals and evaluating sick patients. The CBC is highly sensitive for identifying underlying illness, characterizing severity of disease, and providing objective information regarding the progression/regression of disease.

Changing, Innovating, and Stopping the Drama Along the Way
Presenter: Randy Hall, CEO, Aspire 

RACE approved for 2 CEU credits for veterinarians and CVPM managers.  

As part of a team in veterinary medicine, people show up to make a difference for the animals, their owners, and the practice. But often, things can get in our way and make our days more stressful, our medical care less efficient and the client experience less than we hoped for. Two of the things that often trip us up are the struggle to effectively change the way we do things and the drama and internal conflict that can plague any team.  In this session we will explore ways to help change happen more effectively, more quickly and with less resistance on our team. We will learn how to communicate and innovate as we continuously improve our care and service. We will also learn how to create a world where we move past the kinds of internal conflict that causes us to perform at a level that is far less than our best. Together we will work through why conflict happens in our practice and how we can reduce, or even eliminate it, freeing us to focus fully on our medical care and the difference we showed up to make. Join us as we learn to make change happen quickly and easily and stop the drama in our practice as well. Together we will discuss how to build and be part of an amazing veterinary team that does incredible work, and also enjoys the work we do and the place we do it.
