Colorado State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences is launching a new communication training program for veterinarians. The first four workshops will be held May 7 and 8 and Oct. 1 and 2 at the university’s Veterinary Medical Center.
“Frank: An Interactive Veterinarian-Client Communication Workshop” is designed to teach veterinarians how to be frank when it’s not easy, providing communication skills to deal with a variety of situations.
Jane Shaw, DVM, Ph.D., director of the college’s Argus Institute, will teach the program, which is being sponsored by New York-based Pfizer Animal Health.
The program also aims to teach veterinarians how to get a more complete pet history, build collaboration with clients, encourage pet owners to be more involved in veterinary visits and communicate with the pet owner about expectations, next steps and limitations in care.
Continuing education credit is available.
Classes are limited to 25-30 participants. Registration deadlines: April 23 for the May program and Sept. 23 for the October program.
