VDS Claims team join VDS Training’s Ruth Serlin for NEW webinar series

Members of the VDS Claims and Advice team will join VDS Training’s Ruth Serlin as part of her new autumn webinar series, "It's Good to Talk". This engaging three-part series, aimed at everyone working with clients in the veterinary community, is designed to provide you with the necessary tools and techniques to navigate some of the more challenging interactions you may face. 

Hosted by the VDS Training team, and focusing on communication with expert Ruth Serlin, VDS Training Consultant, the free one-hour webinars will feature guests from organisations supporting those on the frontline of veterinary care, plus our very own Claims Consultants, to equip you with practical insights and skills that can be applied to your daily work.

Webinar 1: Let's get contextual: Removing fear and judgement from veterinary care

Date: Wednesday 18 October 2023

Time: 7:30pm (GMT)

Join the first webinar with Alison Richards from Cats Protection and Dan Holden, Claims Consultant from the Veterinary Defence Society. Together with Ruth, they'll explore contextualised care and decision-making in resource-limited situations, emphasising the importance of flexible clinical approaches due to the growing impact of the cost-of-living crisis on veterinary decisions, and discuss how unique circumstances and needs of each animal influence our interventions as practitioners.
