Top tips for creating psychologically healthy veterinary teams – ‘with love’ from the team at Blackwater Vets

Success in the face of increasing external challenges for independent veterinary practices, comes at increasing costs at both the business and personal level. Research focused on the veterinary professions is starting to show that methods and approaches tried and tested in other domains from human healthcare to aerospace are key for all teams in high stakes, high pressure workplaces. Whilst the research has been catching up, there have been ‘pockets of practice’ where veterinary teams have successfully demonstrated ‘practice based evidence’ for addressing the organisational as well as the personal factors to create and sustain psychologically healthy teams. Blackwater Vets is one of these teams and we have distilled ‘top tips’ for success with you at the Vet Expo in 2024.
