Vet leadership Survey: Thank you for your insights!

Thank you all!

Our Veterinary Leadership Survey has now closed. With nearly 200 vets having a look and 166 completed surveys, we’re really pleased with the response. Your insights and answers will help design a course to address leadership, mental health and wellbeing issues in the profession.

We’ve drawn the winners of the prizes and emails are winging their way to you today. Keep an eye on your inbox to see if you’ve won.

It’s great to see the responses and whilst the picture painted reinforces some of the profession’s challenges, there’s inspiration and insight galore. We are crunching the data now and you’ll start to see statistics and PR on the subject from us later in the summer.

For those that have signed up to learn more about the project, we’ll start communicating more details in August.

Once again thanks, it’s great when the profession pulls together to pay it forward for the next generation of vets.

Veterinary Leadership Survey

In fact, veterinary mental health and wellbeing is such a hot topic at the moment that there was a full edition of the Journal of Veterinary Medical Education dedicated to it recently[1].

In the introduction, Professor Susan Rhind from the University of Edinburgh talks about moving from studying the rain to studying the umbrella. At the VBC we take this to mean moving from focusing on the problem to being solution orientated. We’re really excited to offer you a chance to participate in designing umbrellas, figuratively speaking.

One of our clients is about to launch a personal development project for vets and vet nurses. They’re offering a chance to win a bottle of bubbly in return for completing a short survey[2].

Complete the survey here.

Your insights and comments will be incorporated into the planning of the programme and could help change veterinary mental health for the better. That could literally be a lifesaver for a vet who is struggling.

A test event will run later in 2017. If you’d like to keep up to date on progress, then the survey gives you chance to opt-in for emails too.

In anticipation of your support for this project the VBC and our client would like to thank you in and invite you to keep in touch with the project.
