Bryan will provide an overview of what it takes to design your dream hospital or clinic of any size, including finding the right team, major steps in the process, and what to expect from your design team. Emphasis will be on how to save time and money while ensuring the outcome is never compromised. Bryan follows a “function over form” design philosophy that considers operational efficiency as a top design criteria. From “right-sizing” functional spaces to selection of appropriate materials, every decision in the design process should be driven by what will deliver a facility that will support efficient workflow, maximise potential revenue per square metre, and be enjoyable to work in

If something happens to your client, what happens to their pet? A holistic animal welfare approach

Animal health & Welfare
In addition to your work, your passion, and your love of all animals great and small, you are most probably a caring pet owner too. Someone doing everything you can for the companion you are responsible for and who you share your life with but, have you ever thought about who would step into that role if something happened to you?If you have spent time considering this thought, how much further have you taken it? Did you come up with a conclusion, did you arrive at a plan?Are you fortunate enough to have family or friends you can turn to whenever you need help? Would they be able to take on the responsibility of your pet if you unexpectedly passed-away, or became too sick to look after them? Who would you choose? Do they even know your wishes? Do they even know your pet? These are questions that RSPCA clinicians have begun to ask each and every one of their clients on a regular basis. It’s all part of our holistic animal welfare approach.The RSPCA NSW Home Ever After program was created as a proactive solution to tackle the issue of unplanned surrenders of much-loved pets at our shelters. It is designed to provide owners with a planned approach to safeguarding their pet’s future should something happen to them. Initially it was aimed at senior pet owners, but as we progressed, we realized that this problem is not exclusive to old age because people of all ages can face the same issue. Young, old, rich or poor – no one wants to imagine a scenario where their pet is left alone with no one coming home to look after them.Want to know more? Join us for a discussion about the program and how to introduce these questions into your practice too.

SARS-CoV-2 in animals

Disease control
Many questions have been raised regarding the possible role of animalsin the current COVID-19 pandemic; can animals be infected withSARS-CoV-2? Do they get disease? Can they spread the virus betweenhumans? Multiple countries have now reported positive cases ofSARS-CoV-2 in cats and dogs, although the clinical relevance of this isuncertain. This talk therefore aims to outline the current understandingof SARS-CoV-2 infection in companion animals, providing an overview ofthe latest studies that describe both experimental and naturalinfections. The risk of zoonotic spread of the virus to pet owners isdeemed to be very low, but ways to minimise the likelihood of virustransmission between animals and humans will also be discussed

Demystifying Antimicrobrial Resistance

Animal health & Welfare
Demystifying Antimicrobial ResistanceAMR sometimes feels like a big, messy problem. While some people are motivated by the challenges posed by big messy problems, the majority of us tend to respond in one of two ways: 1. We distance ourselves from the problem, either denying that it exists, or believing that it is somebody else’s responsibility to solve (think climate change!). 2. We feel overwhelmed and powerless to affect change. This can have a paralysing, anxiety-inducing effect that makes us uncertain about the right course of action.But it doesn’t have to be this way. We all have the capacity to be change makers in the veterinary response to AMR, and the good news is that it’s not as hard as it seems. During this presentation I will borrow from the lessons learned from my time on film sets to break down some of the simple things we can all do to minimise resistance in our patients and our practices. I’ll also give you a sneak peak of some new resources we’re developing for Australian and New Zealand vets in this area.

Mastering Conflict- Successfully Managing Angry & Emotional Clients

Mastering Conflict…. Successfully Managing Angry & Emotional ClientsLincoln Institute’s recent research into the global veterinary shortage confirms that managing clients’ expectations around clinical outcomes and costs of treatment is a major source of stress and anxiety for veterinarians.
